Scraps of History

My class just finished their Biography Book projects on Friday.  They had to create a scrapbook page of a famous person in history.  They decorated the front and back of a 12 x 12 black piece of paper.

Here is a close up of a letter written as Harriet Tubman.

They had to include:
  • Name, date of birth and death if available
  • 4 photos from computer or drawn
  • 3 items/memorabilia 
  • a letter or diary entry written from the person's point of view
