Our Helen Keller lesson plan introduces the life and historical significance of Helen Keller, including her accomplishments. During this lesson, students are asked to create a timeline of Helen Keller’s life, using their creativity to come with a design and creative title; they then present their timeline to the class, developing their public speaking skills. Students are also asked to read select Helen Keller quotes and write what each of them means, using their critical thinking skills.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify Helen Keller and explain her significance in history.
