One of the great things about homeschooling is that we have the flexibility to take advantage of learning opportunities. Holidays give us the perfect excuse to go on a learning tangent.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is the third Monday of January celebrating the birthday of the great civil rights leader — you guess it — Martin Luther King Jr.! Here are some ideas to help spur learning on (or near) MLK Day!
Some Great Resources
NotebookingPages.com is a great resource for — yes, you guessed it again — notebooking pages. Notebooking is a great way to maintain control and flexibility in teaching a topic.

Check it out here.
Here are some screenshots of the notebooking pages, a sampling of the 8-15 different page templates that is included with each document.
