How do you get ALL the standards for historical figures in before the end of the year? Here is your creative solution. Order plain pizza boxes online (I got 50 for $13 on Amazon) and put the students into groups. Each group gets 5 boxes. I check their sketches for each category before I give them their pizza box. They need to address each bullet point under each category. That way I know each box will be quality work.
When they are all done, host a Museum Walk for all students to enjoy and learn about ALL the historical figures - not just the one they researched.
