Autobiography through Objects
Show youngsters how objects can tell a story! Here your class will learn about Cuban salsa dancer Celia Cruz by analyzing pictures of her dress, her shoes, and her marriage certificate. After describing Cruz's items and imagining what they tell us about her, youngsters can bring in meaningful objects of their own to create their own autobiographical display. A fun and creative activity, you can personalize the lesson by using a figure more familar to your class.
