Historical Hall of Fame

I found this idea recently in this blog post:

Who Has Influenced Mankind? Let Your Students Be The Judge Of That – The Historical Hall Of Fame

I think this would be a great big project for any class on any level. 

“The project centers around the students getting the chance to nominate someone they believe is worthy for induction into this Hall of Fame.  This can be anyone from any time and place.  The nomination should be someone they feel has impacted or continues to impact mankind.” 

Students pick a person and fill out a nomination form including an essay saying why they think this person is worthy of the nomination. Then they do research and come up with a 3-5 minute presentation that is presented to a panel of judges. 

Judges can be adults within the school or school district or even business people. 

Judges’ scores and student grades determine who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. A ceremony can even be planned where students receive a certificate in honor of their nomination. 

I think this would be a fun activity and would incorporate a lot of different skills.
