    We just got done a unit on explorers. I assisgned each of the student a North American explorer. Then we brainstormed questions you would ask if you were interviewing someone. Each student had to come up with ten questions. The students researched their explorer and wrote responses to their questions in the first person. One student was chosen to be a talk show host. We chose Christopher Columbus. The students brought their questions and answers to the interview desk and were interviewed by the talk show host. Students at their seats were given a grid with five major categories that they had to take notes on for each interviewee. The categories were: Where and when were you born? Where did you explore? What were you looking for? Interesting Facts. Where and when did you die? Students filled in as much information as they could ascertain from the interview. Some students chose to use accents and if we had more time I would have had them dress up. They had fun.
