Fourth-graders Create Living Biographies
Melissa Foraker and Sara Snyder’s fourth-graders took part in an immersive history lesson at the end of the school year. As part of an in-depth research project, students choose a person from history, take notes, and present their findings. The culmination of the project is Living Biographies. During the presentations, students dress up as their historical figures and read a speech about their lives. Some of this year’s historical figures included Jesse Owens, Rosa Parks, and Susan B. Anthony.
