Writing Biographies

Student’s in Ms. Carter’s class were tasked to, “Choose a person from history who intrigues or amazes you in some way.”  Students could select a person from any party of the world who made contributions to any area of interest, such as math, science, writing, technology, or human rights.  After conducting research on the selected person, the students needed to present the information to their classmates in some way.  Some students chose to showcase their research on a poster, a mobile, or by creating a digital media project.  In addition, the students created shadow boxes to represent a significant event from the person’s life.  All students had the opportunity to present their projects to their classmates and to show-off their work in the hallway.  You can see in the pictures below that students included QR codes on shadow box projects to explain the significant event depicted.
