A Hands-On Project to Change it Up!
October 26, 2013
An engaging Hands-On Project to change it up in your classroom!
Make a Gift Basket For Someone in History!
Have your students imagine that they could send a very special gift basket back in time to a famous historical figure! Well, they have been chosen to do just that.
Trust me, this is a fun and engaging project to use in your history classroom! Students will forget they are researching and learning and you will be amazed at their creativity! If you use this project in your classroom, let us know how it turned out! We'd love to feature your testimonial on OwlTeacher.com!
My first book, The Imbondeiro Tree, is set for release on October 31st, 2013! It is published by Black Rose Writing and is a memoir of my father's life told through his voice.
Spanning more than eight decades and three continents, The Imbondeiro Tree is the true story of Antonio Augusto who grew up in the tiny Azores Islands of Portugal with big dreams of going to Africa someday. Fueled by courage and conviction, he boards a ship to Angola, Africa as a young adult and his adventure begins. Although Africa is a harsh, unforgiving continent, he is eternally mesmerized by its charms. Then, brutal civil war erupts in 1975 and Antonio's faith and determination are once again put to the test. He faces losing everything and leaving his beloved Angola behind only to start over in Southern California as an immigrant with a family to support.
From the coastal villages of the Azores and the untamed jungles of Africa to Southern California, The Imbondeiro Tree is a testament to the power of ambition and faith and the triumph of the human spirit.
The Imbondeiro Tree is a great addition to your lesson plans! It will work well with a unit on African Colonialism, World History, Immigration, etc.
We are working right now to create unique learning packets to accompany The Imbondeiro Tree and will have them ready soon! Keep checking back on OwlTeacher.com.
