Biography/ Activity

I Am Rosa Parks - Rosa Parks, James Haskins, Wil Clay

I chose Rosa Parks because Charlea looks to her as a great historical figure (as do I) and she reads about her all the time. I would allow the students to choose an important historical figure of their liking and then read the biography and we can make an activity, such as dressing up like your historical figure and telling the class about their important role in history. All-in-all, we are able to incorporate history into our reading and learn something about each students' person's role in history, all the while making it fun by dressing up and telling our stories! I have attached a picture of my Charlea dressed up as Rosa! Target age range would be 4th grade!
