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 plan by using a figure more familar to your class.

Lesson Planet has been fantastic!! I have been able to look at many different lessons based on my chosen theme and then just take the pieces I like and make it my own. It makes life so much easier and I have gleaned some great ideas. Thank you!!
