    This last year my students researched famous or not so famous people on the internet by getting either biographies from designated sites (Scholastic or Biography.com) or information posted about individuals by use of search engines. Then they did their own bio poems about themselves. Once they were finished, they did a biography poem about the individual that they studied. They inserted information that the bio poem asked and were able to tell that they are not so different from the people they researched. After all the project was done they were able to do an art project by placing both poems on construction paper of their choice. They then found pictures of the people they researched. They cut those out and pasted them near the biography poem. I, then, took digital pictures of the students and had them place them by their own bio poems. It turned out great. You can do this during "Black History Month", "Women History Month", or any time of year to acknowledge important people in our lives.
    It was good hard work, but very fun indeed. :o)
