Delving into extraordinary lives

Sixth-grade students in Stacie Blaut’s ELA class presented their biography speeches recently.

A group of seven middle school students stand in a line holding props representing the person they studied. one student has a top hat on and is holding a picture of his subject, another is holding a football, one is holding a cut-out of a Disney castle, one has a jar of barbeque sauce over head, one is holding a guitar and another has a trophy.


Students transformed into their subject, immersing themselves into their lives and times. There was Anne Frank, Aretha Franklin, Houdini, Helen Keller, Jennifer Lopez, Chico Mendes, Paul Revere, John Cena, Tiki Barber, Walt Disney, Mark Zuckerberg, Ed Sheeran and Adam Sandler.


Five middle school students stand together either dressed as the person they studied or holding items representing that person. From left a student is holding a diary, an elastic, a bunny,  a yellow piece of paper and the last is dressed in funky clothes, round sunglasses.



Two sixth-grade girls, both with glasses, stand together. One is holding a diary and the other pictures of the singer Aretha Franklin.


The students gave detailed experiences for their subject including details about their lifestyle, early childhood, lessons they’ve learned and influential people in their lives. The students certainly enjoyed this project, going in-depth on the people they admire.
