Looking for a way to motivate your student athletes? Or a way to incorporate literacy skills in physical education?
In this biography and response activity, students will use the Internet to read biographical informational text on George Herman "Babe" Ruth, then analyze a visual source (a film clip evaluating Ruth's swing). Questions are included that encourage cross-disciplinary thinking and personalize the content for students.
This webquest / activity includes both a student assignment handout and an answer key.
*This activity -- along with activities focused on seven (7) other famous writers, artists, musicians, and aviators from the 1920s -- can be found in the "Who's Who of the 1920s: Biography Activity / Webquest Set" in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
