Subbing in an economics classroom, I was left without lesson plans. I checked online for emergency and discovered that Nobel Foundation has free printable high school lessons and games on economics, as well as educational activities in all the Nobel Prize categories--medicine, science, physics, literature and humanitarian efforts. Here are free printable lesson plans based on the work of Nobel Prize winners.
The Nobel Prize crosses every geographic, political, social and racial boundary in the world. Winners of the prize called 'Laureates', hail from all over the globe. Past winners include Pablo Neruda, Pearl Buck, Desmond Tutu, Marconi, Enrico Fermi, William Golding, John Steinbeck, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Barack Obama, Elie Weisel, Mother Theresa, Ghandi, Martin Luther King, and many others.
