    hi tiffany, one of the most fun activities i did in ss this year was to have each stud choose a famous character in history.we were studying the civil war around that time. all i did was tell them to research their person, and make notes , and prepare an oral presentation that began this way: hello, my name is______________. i am the wife of ...or i was shot, etc. they had to pretend that they were the actual person they had researched, and get up and do an oral presentation
    (i let them use little notes on an index card to help them stay organized, but they could NOT read from their notes) another thing that made it so much fun was the student was to dress the part if they could. they were not to spend any money though on anything. they were to be creative with their costumes. this was a plan that came together!!it was great, and i wished i had a video of it. ( oh yes, i required no written report on the characters. you could choose to do other wise. also, you could make a big pr thing of this and invite their parents in. ) if you do this let me know how it worked if you want to.
    good luck to you. email me if ya want to. smile bebe
