Martin Luther King - 47 years ago, on April 4th the civil rights leader was assassinated

Martin Luther King Jr. was the most important representative of the American Civil Rights Movement, which fought for equal rights for all. He used nonviolent resistance against segregation laws. He truly believed  that "all men are created equal" as he said in the famous speech he delivered during the march on Washinghton on August, 28 1963. King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. He was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, on April, 4 1968 when he was just 39 years old.

What can we do to save our planet?

To talk about the Environment to my students, this time I have created a simple Emaze online presentation. 
Emaze is a very interesting web tool, you can select a pre-designed template (or make your own slides from scratch) and easily create your presentation (slideshow, video and even a 3D presentation) by adding text, images, charts and videos. 
You can also save the presentation to view it offline.

This work is just a starting point to talk about many topics related to the environment. Students will learn:
  • the meaning of the word environment
  • to consider that we belong to a global community which shares resources
  • to become more responsible and care about the planet Earth
  • to think critically about the impact of people on their planet
  • to take some real actions for the environment
  • to understand the importance of reducing, reusing, recycling
