Creator:

Elizabeth Carr


School/Organization:

Vestavia Hills City Schools,

Vestavia Hills Elementary East

 

Overview:

This podcast is the final project of an in depth research project on Famous Americans. Each student chose which famous American to research. They all read a biography, researched their person using the AVL or other online resources and wrote a 1-2 page report. On a designated day, our "Living Museum" was opened and these characters came to life. Each child dressed as their famous American and came to school to give a speech to friends and family about the important events of their life. We hope you enjoy this podcast and learn more about the life of Dolley Madison!
