Steve Jobs has this interesting life. That’s a very engaging activity because kids are really interested in technology, specially iPads , iPods, etc.
Steve Jobs, the American businessman and technology visionary who is best known as the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc, was born on February 24, 1955. His parents were two University of Wisconsin graduate students, Joanne Carole Schieble and Syrian-born Abdulfattah Jandali. They were both unmarried at the time. Jandali, who was teaching in Wisconsin when Steve was born, said he had no choice but to put the baby up for adoption because his girlfriend’s family objected to their relationship.
The baby was adopted at birth by Paul Reinhold Jobs (1922–1993) and Clara Jobs (1924–1986). Later, when asked about his “adoptive parents”, Jobs replied emphatically that Paul and Clara Jobs “were my parents.”
In short, there is this very interesting video that my beloved coworker sent to me that you can watch with your students:
The worksheet itself it is kind of a lapbook, however few information was provided on this. Students got to choose what they would write on it.
You can download if you want the worksheet, I just want to let you know that the Steve Jobs face was taken from a very interesting blog called Toy-A-Day, I found it really funky, and kids loved it.
