This is a fun project that your students will love. They will spend 4-6 weeks reading an autobiography or biography depending on the age of your students and how large their books are. After reading their books, they will get to create a fun (and adorable!!!) poster for a presentation. My students enjoyed this activity and I had multiple teachers come into my room to watch the presentations, because the students looked absolutely precious while giving them! The students get to have fun with this project and feel what it was like to be the person that they had studied.
I did this with 6th graders, however, I think it could get really neat doing this project with older students. The presentations would be a lot more detailed and interesting!
