Historical Facebook Lesson

Facebook, one of the most popular social-networking sites on the Internet these days, is being actively used by our students. Students are constantly finding new ways to use it to communicate and share information with others through this and similar sites. In an attempt to introduce a little history lesson, Derrick Waddell created a really cool Facebook profile template for historical figures. The template is available online via the Google Docs public template gallery.

The template includes directions on how to “complete” the profile and uses the Google Docs editing tools to add the content (insert an image, add text box, draw tool, etc.). When complete, students can use the Google Docs menu to download the completed template as a picture or PDF file for printing or electronic submission to the teacher.

NOTE: When complete, this template will not result in an actual Facebook account being created.

Thanks to Free Tech for Teachers for sharing this find.
