âI Have a Dream" Speech and "My Country âTis of Thee" Song
Children are introduced to two beautiful examples of the power of words in this “I Have a Dream" Speech and "My Country ‘Tis of Thee" Song worksheet. Students read a passage describing the origins of former U.S. national anthem "My Country 'Tis of Thee," then read an excerpt from Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech, which uses the lyrics from the song as a call to action. Children then answer questions to help reinforce reading comprehension. Designed for fourth and fifth graders, this inspiring worksheet supports children as they learn to make inferences with evidence and identify context clues.
