This activity would be great for ANY grade level. Our class has been working on building character, and I thought it would be a great idea to get the parents involved. Students start out by picking a hero. This could be a parent, a family member, a coach, etc. They fill out the first box of the interview page and then ask their hero 4 questions about what characteristics make a good person, how a person can exemplify those characteristics, and what they think is the most important lesson to learn to be a good person. When they bring these interview questions back to school they write a "newspaper article" on the newspaper template. (I connected the 2 pages and then photocopied them onto 11"X17" construction paper. They students also include a picture of their hero on their newspaper. I have the students present their newspapers to the class, and tell the class what they have learned from their "hero." This activity makes a great bulletin board with the heading "EVERYTHING I KNOW, I LEARNED FROM MY HERO!!!". The newspapers can be hung one at a time with a new one each week, or all at the same time. This looks great for conferences. I do this activity with a year-long character building lessons and bulletin boards. These will be posted later.
