This project encourages students to look more closely at American Heroes who have played a part in shaping the events and values within Americas history and present. This Packet is complete with procedures, tasks and a scoring guide. The project includes a written, artistic, and presentation componant. The project could also be completed in pairs for younger students. I used this in a second grade class and got amazing results, however could be applicable to upper elementary as well.
Supplemental material to support use in younger grades includes: letter to parents, note taking guide, mid project research evaluation.
