Celebrate the diversity of your class/school community this MLK Day with a gorgeous hand print mural like this one designed by art teacher, Heather Martin! {Didn't it turn out amazing?!} The collaborative project is sure to foster a sense of teamwork and community among your students and the finished mural offers a powerful visual of acceptance and harmony! Not to mention the display is student-created so it requires little work on your part; simply cover the bulletin board with black background paper, add a complimentary border, and {optional} entitle the display with one of Dr. King's well-known quotes.
