Product Description
Students delve deep into a historic figure and then bring that figure to life at a fantastic end of project soiree. After detailed research, students literally take on the role of their historical figure at a historical soiree. All the parts of the project are scaffolded in with student handouts and stages of research. From journal entries to costume design to analyzing the historical context, students explore what makes different figures from history become the person they become.

Works with different periods of history, science and even literary figures. Great fun!
