World History Class “Historical Speed Dating”

 

IMG_0255Marla Palmer‘s 9th Grade World History class took a new twist on their studies with a “Historical Speed Dating” activity. The students researched a historical character from ancient Greece or Rome, created a fake Facebook profile of that character and presented that character in three minutes to another character in their class. They rotated during Alpha and Omega periods. They then recorded what they learned from all the historical figures they interviewed and turned in a summary of who they thought they might likely be friends with (across time and space) and who they did not think they were compatible with (in a platonic sense)! Thanks to Mrs. Palmer for a great activity!
