Six grade students at East Rockaway’s Centre Avenue School discovered a fun and creative way to enhance their nonfiction text lessons and add life to their History Figure Biography Project.
Using nonfiction text and online resources, students gathered information and learned about a famous historical figure. The final projects included a presentation of their research to their classmates while dressed as their subject. Students discovered how each person made their mark in history and what obstacles they encountered throughout their lives.
Their research also allowed them to explore the human qualities and traits that helped each historical figure become successful.
