PNC Students Offer Martin Luther King Jr. Day Activities
Westville – Purdue University North Central Department of Education students and members of Kappa Delta Pi, the education honorary society, will commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a variety of activities for children on Monday, Jan. 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Michigan City Library. The event is free and open to the public.
All ages are invited, but most activities are geared for youngsters ages 2 to 12 years.
This is the second year that PNC students, under the leadership of Dr. David Pratt, associate professor of Education, have planned a day of fun, interactive learning to teach young people about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The PNC students will lead the young people in crafts, coloring, a bingo game and reading aloud. Participants will also listen to Dr. King's “I Have a Dream speech” and write about their own dream.
Pre-registration is not required.
