History Project – Famous people from the past
Neil Armstrong and Florence Nightingale are both significant (important) individuals from the past who have contributed to national and international achievement.
Neil Armstrong was a pilot, astronaut and engineer who was the first person to walk on the moon.
Florence Nightingale was a nurse during the Crimean War and the founder of modern nursing.
Your job over Easter is to research one of these historical figures. Find out about his/her personal life (where/when were they born?, what was their childhood like?, what was their education like?, what did they do for a job?) and why was he/she famous (what did he/she do that made history?).
You can present your work as a piece of informational writing with a title, sub-headings, pictures & captions (similar to our non-fiction Barn Owl reports) either hand-written or typed on the computer, as a poster, model or PowerPoint. Be creative! You could even make a video if you are feeling up to a challenge!
