Help Young Americans Learn About History & Famous Americans 2

My students need 2 sets of biographies of important Americans and a class set of write and wipe board erasers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students and I learn and work together in a second grade classroom in a New York Public School.

Being a history lover myself, I would like to instill my love of history in my own students.

Helping students understand the great people and events that shaped our country into what it is will help them appreciate the value of rights and freedoms fought for by those before us.

My Project

In order to help students understand and appreciate the people who helped shape our country, I would like to incorporate many different biographies of famous historical figures in American History. Students will learn about people such as Martin Luther King Jr., George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson through child-friendly, grade-appropriate texts. The biographies I am requesting come in both hard-copy and CD, allowing all the students in our classroom to learn about these important historical figures. I am also requesting a set of write and wipe board erasers to use during some fun review games.

Although history lends itself as a great story to tell, it is sometimes difficult to make certain areas of history come alive for the students.

This is why I am requesting several different grade appropriate biographies to help children learn about different historical figures.
