Historical Figure Picture Book

Here is a really fun way to teach historical fiction and research at the same time.  The class researches the life of Annie Sullivan and then uses facts from her life to create a historical fiction where they are time travelers going back to the turn of the century. The neat thing about the lesson is that it was written for a class with both general and special education students. The teacher reflection and accommodations provided may help you address children with special needs in your own classroom.
