Blank "Farce" Book Poster (14 x 22)
If the wildly popular "Facebook" site had been around when Benjamin Franklin was alive, what would we see in his profile? Who would be on his friends list? What might he post on his wall? What groups would he be part of? This clever poster provides a relevant and exciting platform for learning about people of the past. Designed to emulate a social site profile, there are sections for pictures, pictures of friends, personal information, education and work background, relatives, groups, "wall" posts, status updates, and causes. Students will love collecting information on inventors, historical figures, artists, and other famous people to create their Farce Book pages! What a fun alternative to the typical paper or worksheet and I'm betting they retain more too! I would assign these as fun supplements as we talked about people in our history studies to engage my kids in further study. In a co-op or group setting, every student could choose one person to research and then everyone could enjoy reading through them all. They would be a great visual aid to accompany a speech or just to familiarize yourself with a person when preparing an oral presentation. Of course, you could also use them traditionally for kids to write about themselves, which most kids enjoy. Maybe let each student in a class or Sunday school fill one out and then hang them on the wall. Or use them in the office as you profile an employee of the week! Interview a family member using these sections as the basis for your questions. Make a whole family tree! 14" x 22" ~ Steph
