The third graders at WES studied the character traits of historical and public figures during their biography unit.
Students listened to videos, read short passages and picture books, and took notes about the people’s lives. They learned about the person’s family, childhood, education, accomplishments, as well as many other interesting facts.
As a cumulative project to this unit, Ms. Kinney’s class created biography posters where the students stepped into history and became a famous figure for a brief moment in time. The students then shared their projects with their classmates.
