Living Biography Museum

How do you teach the biography genre without it being boring and mundane?  You have students choose someone they are passionate about…someone who has made a difference…someone that will keep them engaged during their time researching.  You also have them become the person and present themselves to the public.

The Living Biography Museum was created by the fourth grade students as they developed their research, writing, and presentation skills. Many classes throughout the school visited the Living Biography Museum, and during the exhibition, students presented the lives of their famous person in the first person.
