Need an idea for SS test on heroes

I'm looking for a way to have students do more than just answer multiple-choice questions. The topic is heroes, based on our SS textbook unit. Got any ideas? I'm at a loss.

What if your students had to defend a character trait with which you described a hero?

For Example;

How did Harriet Tubman display bravery?

Then the students would have to write about how Harriet led the Underground Railroad over and over from the southern states to the northern where the slaves she brought with her could become free citizens. If she and her followers had been caught they more than likely would have been killed. So Tubman risked her life with each journey.

You might give them 10 choices. Then ask them to answer only five as they might not remember all the heroes.




Matching questions might work. For matching you might copy the pictures of the heroes from the text book and have students put the name with the correct picture. Then they could write a caption to go under the pictures.
