Inspired by the ideals of Mahatmas Gandhi, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. became one of the most influential civil rights leaders and thinkers in the United States and the world. In Historical Heroes: Martin Luther King, Jr., children read a short biography of the life and legacy of the civil rights leader. They then answer a brief set of who, what, where, why, and how questions designed to reinforce their learning. Created for a second and third grade social studies curriculum, this worksheet supports children as they develop their nonfiction comprehension skills.
