LS Gr. 4 Work Share: Inspirational Figures Hall of Fame

A highlight of fourth grade at RCDS is the Inspirational Figures Hall of Fame.

 Students pick an inspirational person and conduct research about their life, career, and influence on the world. Then, they create physical representations of the person out of clay in art class. The interdisciplinary unit concludes with a formal presentation from each fourth grader in PAC Theater. Students work hard to memorize and deliver their speeches with the proper tone and cadence, and sharing their knowledge with loved ones in the audience is an especially proud moment.

This year’s inspiration figures selections included Anne Frank, Jackie Robinson, Winston Churchill, Sonia Sotomayor, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jim Abbott, and more.
