My Essential Question <ul><li>What impact did Nelson Mandela have in history? </li></ul>
Why I Chose Nelson Mandela <ul><li>I chose Nelson Mandela because he played a huge part in African history, like his role in aparthied. </li></ul>
What I Already Knew About Nelson Mandela <ul><li>I knew that Nelson was the first president of South Africa. </li></ul><ul><li>He was in prison for 27 years of his life. </li></ul><ul><li>He played a big part in apartheid trying to end it. </li></ul>
Early Life <ul><li>He was born on July 18, 1918 in Transki, Africa. His great-grandfather ruled as the king of the Thembu people, his heritage. Nelson’s real name is Rolihlahla but that quickly changed to Nelson because no one could pronounce his first name. </li></ul>
Adulthood <ul><li>When he was an adult he started to get into all of Africa’s problems like apartheid, he tried so hard to get it to stop. When he was 45 years old he went to jail for rebelling against the unacceptable rule of apartheid, the separation between whites and blacks. He married Graca Machel on his 80 th birthday, two years after his divorce from Winnie Mandela. </li></ul>
What Surprised Me <ul><li>What surprised me was that he has been married 3 times. </li></ul><ul><li>His first name means troublemaker in the part of Africa he lives in (Transki). </li></ul>
