Cloverdale Elementary Students Engage In Biographical Study Of Famous People



Inspired by stories read in class about Lou Gehrig, Amelia Earhart and Eleanor Roosevelt, students in Mrs. Bookwalter and Mrs. Kemp’s fourth grade reading classes at Cloverdale Elementary decided to delve deeper into these heroic individuals’ lives as well as other famous people. From athletes like Olympian Missy Franklin and author JK Rowlings, to other famous aviators like Charles Lindberg, students used both print and Internet sources for their biographical research. Then adding a touch of creativity, students created trading cards, unique cereal boxes and cubes that included time lines, famous quotes, and memorable moments in their chosen person’s life. Pictured above, left to right, are: Torrence Farmer, Aubree Branigan, Anna Powell, Grant Maners, Chase Ashcraft and Nathan Tungett.
