Helen Keller Lesson Plans

My second grade daughter recently learned about Helen Keller.  Coincidentally I was asked to read and review about about Helen Keller.  She has always been a personal hero of mine.  As a special education teacher, I see her as proof that any child can learn.  She overcame great challenges and she was able to learn and excel.  One great book about Helen Keller is I am Helen KellerI am Helen Keller book.  It is part of the Ordinary People Change the World Series.  This book is great because it is somewhat like a comic book.  It is entertaining to read (or to listen to).   It tells many details of Helen Keller’s life and talks about all the obstacles she overcame, how she overcame them, and how she excelled later in life. Today I bring you some Helen Keller Lesson Plans.
