Congratulations, Seventh Grade,
on your first successful Hero Fair!
Not only did our Eighth Grade participate in the Hero Fair, but our Seventh graders did as well!
In addition to learning about, researching, writing, designing a Prezi and presenting their Prezi to an audience (whew!), these kids also learned to draw a realistic portrait of their American Hero.
I wish you could have seen our student's skeptical faces when I first showed them what they would be learning! I think it's fair to say that even our kids were surprised and extremely proud of their finished artwork.
For a general idea of how these were accomplished, please see the video below. (I just couldn't figure out how to move it up! )
Also, if you'd like to try guessing each hero's identity, answers are at the bottom.
1. James Madison
2. Abraham Lincoln
3. Saint John Neumann
4.. George Washington
5. Clara Barton
6. Benjamin Franklin
