This "historical head" activity is a great way for students to focus on a historical figure (or literary character!) related to whatever unit of study you are currently teaching. Students can use it as a review of information learned or as an avenue to research and present information on a historical figure to his/her classmates.
This activity provides students with the opportunity be be creative, artistic, and potentially think "outside the box". Heads can be as simple or elaborate as you see fit.
The download includes the "historical head" template itself, as well as a page of directions.
