A Collision of Historical Characters – Third Grade Biography Day!
Every year my third graders complete a book report on a biographical character. As a teacher I really enjoy seeing the anticipation leading up to their oral presentations! They spend the entire month researching and reading about their characters. Without fail, I can expect to hear random and interesting facts throughout the month of January! For example: did you know that while Albert Einstein was exceptionally smart, he struggled with basic tasks like tying his shoes or remembering to eat a meal? Also, did you know that King Tut was a CHILD king and died before his 20th birthday!
On Wednesday, January 31st, the students came dressed and prepared to share their characters with the rest of the class and parent visitors. I am so proud of the preparation and effort that went into this project. I love BIOGRAPHY DAY at Immanuel and look forward to it every year! When else can I see Thomas Jefferson chasing Ronald Reagan and Jane Goodall on the playground…or…Rosa Parks and Anne Frank working on math facts together? What a sight to behold!
