Boring biography - MADE FUN!!! Get all of the information the kids would get through writing a historical biography - but in a fun, kid-friendly format. This allows them to make a personal ad/facebook page/powerpoint/myspace for a European leader (or could be changed to really any historical figure). Everytime I do this activity - student products get even better. They love it - and it is a good way to go into detail on a potentially boring topic!
