Why Lesson Planet?
Who was Alexander The Great? How did Abraham Lincoln’s early life influence his political life? Learners select a historical figure to use for video biography. After developing research questions and collecting information, pupils search for images, and then formulate a screenplay for their video biography.
- Connect the assignment between language arts and social studies to address skills for both subjects
