Today we held our annual fourth grade Biography Museum. Students have been working hard researching a famous person from history, writing reports, creating posters, and finding a costume to best portray that character. All that effort came to fruition today with friends, family, and other classes coming in to learn all about what these people did that made them so famous. Take a look at some of the famous people who visited us.

To better prepare ourselves for our museum, students were interviewed in character. They shared some of the most important information about their life such as when and where they were born, what their most important achievement was, and what people can learn from their accomplishments. We have created a page in our video section titled Biography Museum 2010-11. Make sure to check back often as we will be adding more biography videos to it in the next few days. You will be able to find an interview by every student in class.

You can watch a couple examples of our videos below!

Ariel and Alexus did an amazing job portraying Florence Nightingale and Amelia Earhart! Everyone else did wonderful during our videos and our museum as well! Not all of our videos went so perfectly the first time around though. Enjoy watching our blooper reel.

You know what they say, practice makes perfect! We may not have gotten them in one shot but they definitely turned out perfectly in the end. Great work everyone!
