Fourth-graders Create Living Biographies

Melissa Foraker’s fourth-graders recently shared their living biography scrapbooks. Via Zoom, students presented their biography scrapbooks of famous historical figures, including Alexander Hamilton, Mahatma Gandhi, Helen Keller, and Jackie Robinson. They shared videos of their historical figure via school app FlipGrid. “Students worked on this project for nine weeks,” Foraker said. “They researched, prepared a speech, and then a scrapbook that depicted elements of their subject’s life.” She added, “The kids were very creative with their scrapbooks and for some of their speeches on FlipGrid they even created backgrounds and a picture slideshow to run behind them.”
