Students love to journey into the myths and legends of the past! Each student will have a Wild West “character” that they will be researching and presenting included famous westerners like Annie Oakley, Chief Joseph, Butch Cassidy, and General Custer. Students then will speed date during the class and greet many infamous names from the past, record who their character may be compatible with and who they may not be.
Overall, students research, write a biography, interact with their peers, and then analyze interactions of historical characters. Great for common core! Most importantly, students absolutely adore this activity and engage really well with each other!
