PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This packet will help you take your students through the entire process of planning and writing a biography. Included in this packet is the following:

• Interview questions with a choice of a note-taking page or note cards
• Planning webs for either a single paragraph or a multi-paragraph writing
• Writing paper with a spot for a picture, lined in both a primary style and an intermediate style
• An alternative to writing paper – booklets for students to create with and without spots for pictures, made for upper and lower grades

This packet is meant to be used for students to write a biography about a fellow classmate but you could easily adapt it to write a biography about a famous person.
