The colorful circles on my bulletin board was another project we did. Each circle has a date on it and the students write what major event happened that year in Martin Luther King, Jr's life. This was a great addition to our art project. Instead of using construction paper, my students colored each circle. My school is having a construction paper shortage, so this solution worked well.

Have you done an art project recently that you were afraid would be a flop? What did your class do for Martin Luther King, Jr day?
Edit: after a couple people asked for the outline of Dr. King's face that Carrie and I used, I outlined it with a Sharpie, scanned, and shared it here on Google Docs. I hope this project works out well for you, too! :)
