Activities for 6th – 12th grade

MLK Day Lesson & Writing Prompt

While we wish that we could hold an in person event this MLK Day, this year the DHM has created children’s resource kits for the community to honor the life & legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This kit includes links to age-appropriate videos, read alouds, and writing prompts to get children thinking about how they can change the world just like Martin Luther King Jr. did!

Online Scavenger Hunts for Kids

Interested in developing research or internet skills for your child while learning Dearborn history along the way? Check out these scavenger hunts! Each will require participants to search the DHM website (and sometimes websites for other local museums) to answer questions about Dearborn. Kids who accept the challenge and email their responses to us at will receive a prize!
