- One or two students in the class will research a specific historical individual to obtain details about their life. The rest of the class will create 5 questions to ask those historical celebrities/student volunteers for homework. Then the students will interview that celebrity in a press conference like format the next day. Serves as a good review of a leader or an end of the year review activity. I usually reward the students that volunteer to be the historical figure with a homework pass if they do a good job.
