This is a very cute idea for a biography project. This girl did her poster and report on Helen Keller. I think that this would be a great idea for doing an "All About Me" project as well.
Another way you can have student give reports or short essays about inventors, characters or researched and historical characters. Kids love to express themselves and it is cute; (would be a neat way to have plays or Holiday recitals).
Encourage descriptive writing with these alternatives to "said".
