This lesson is focused on writing a biographical paragraph and creating a short film of a famous or influential person in American history. Students will research, write, and then create a movie using iMovie outlining the life of their chosen person. This unit takes 2-3 weeks to complete. Students can work in groups of two or on their own.
I thought it would be great fun to have my Second Graders write a narrative piece on their "Summer Fun". The students will be working in whole group, small group, and one-on-one with me to complete their stories. After their stories are completed, they will present their stories to the class 'living in the moment' of their memories while they present us with all of their fun times!
