This whole-class project encourages students to share their dreams with others!

This activity is appropriate for:
1st – 5th grade / 6 - 10 years

You will need:


  1. Give each student a square of paper and markers or crayons.
  2. Ask students to draw a picture of something they want to achieve or accomplish. (Note: Be sure to tell students it could be something big, like “I have a dream to be president,” or something smaller, like “I have a dream to own a dog.”)
  3. Have students write their dream beneath their picture. For younger students, you may want to have them dictate what they want you to write.
  4. Punch two holes along each border of the students’ squares, and tie them together to make a “quilt” to put on display.
  5. In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr., attach the “quilt” to a bulletin board titled “I Have a Dream.”
