Helen Keller was a woman who led a very active life for a person who could not hear or see. Her life was very inspiring and she continues to be a symbol of hope and courage for people all over the world. To learn more about this amazing woman and all her achievements, I created this Helen Keller Study, aimed at children in grades 2 – 5.
