I just stumbled across another amazing resource for teachers..Fakebook.
Students can create fake facebook pages as a project for any historical or recent figure. I love this because it applies to all subjects- history, music, health, social studies, science, and English! This is definitely something that I would love to assign in the future. I have my students participate in Mendel and Darwin Interviews (which I love, so I don’t think I could give them up), but I’m thinking my physical science kids could do this with Isaac Newton as extra credit. 🙂
