If you're looking for something different for a Martin Luther King Day activity, this is it. The "mpatapo" (em-pa-ta-poe) symbol means "knot of pacification/reconciliation". It is a symbol of peacemaking. Mpatapo is an African symbol known as adinkra, from the Asante tribe of Ghana. I thought it was an appropriate representation of what Dr. King tried to do with his peaceful marches, sit-ins and speeches, as he sought nonviolent solutions for abolishing discrimination; so I featured it on this quick, easy and fun MLK Day craftivity.
The packet includes a writing prompt for the back that older students can fill in. I've also included the meaning and short background information in a square that younger students can glue to the back of theirs.
This packet will be FREE for an entire year! Woo hoo. After which time, it will be up-dated and put in my TpT shop.
