The sixth graders read biographies over the summer. The students each created a short presentation to teach their classmates about their person. In addition, each student made a visual aid to accompany his/her presentation. Grades for this project will be based on the student’s knowledge of content, preparedness, public speaking skills, and effort. The students learned about all types of people including Steve Jobs, Steven Spielberg, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Harriet Tubman, Jane Goodall, John F. Kennedy, Nelson Mandela, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jackie Robinson and Albert Einstein.
Great job sixth grade!
