Biographical Research Presentations


Biographical Research Presentations

Logo for Biographical Research Presentations
This lesson plan was created for CEP 811 as a part of the MAET program. It describes a 3rd grade unit focused on biographies, research skills, and informational writing. The students take part in researching a historical figure, creating presentations, and presenting their project at a "Living Museum".  They create props and displays, dress in character, and act as though they are the historical figure. It is a fun way to get kids excited learning!

I dont feel I should rate this lesson since I cant use it in my class.  In reviewing it, it looks good!  I like that you have incorporated a graphic organizer and a rubric for assessment into this research based project.  The material opens up into a template doc and has multiple comments on the margin.  I wonder if it could be cleaned up a little.  

Technical Remarks:

Unused, but looks good.
