Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. day in the US.
It’s a day for celebrating the work and achievements of this remarkable man and activist who became the most celebrated leader in the civil rights movement.
Many, many student notebook pages will be filled with facts and stories about him, but we’d like to suggest a slightly different approach: coding to ‘show what you know’ about Martin Luther King, Jr.
Below you’ll find 2 different coding activities, free to use, that will help your class express their knowledge and understanding in a digital, dynamic way that also improves their coding skills.
For younger students, or those starting on their coding journey: Design a digital museum to show what you know about Martin Luther King, Jr.
Code a digital museum in Scratch to show what you know about Martin Luther King, Jr.

For advanced coders, or older students: Create a flag that represents the March on Washington
