Students will celebrate the achievements of local seniors by presenting life stories and biographies of their elders. Students will select a senior and conduct a formal interview gathering facts for a written biography. They will also conduct background research relevant to local, national and international events that took place in their elder’s lifetime. Pictures, maps, diagrams and primary historical documents will be used where appropriate and available. A bound anthology of biographies will be published, called "Life Stories & Legacies". A copy will be presented to each elder. As well, a copy will be added to our school’s library collection and presented to our local museum. As a closure to this project, the life stories will be celebrated at a fair event.
