If you're like me, you're tired of spinning your wheels when it comes to research projects. You want something more than the typical elementary school animal reports! Having my students study biographies of historical figures allows me to mesh Reading with Social Studies in a really fun, engaging, rigorous way! Transform your students into wax statues... and make your classroom into a museum! Let the learning begin! This 244 page unit includes extension ideas, note-cards, a Biography Book to organize notes, an invitation and parent letter, a rubric, on buttons, pocket labels, a Biography genre poster and more!

It addresses the following American Heroes: Benjamin Franklin, Garrett Morgan, Lydia Morgan, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, Eleanor Roosevelt, Elizabeth Blackwell, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Neil Armstrong, Mary Jane McLeod Bethune, Paul Revere, Sally Ride, Theodore Roosevelt, Dr. Charles Drew, Dr. Daniel Hale, Bessie Cole, Betsy Ross, George Washington, Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Martin Luther King, Johnny Appleseed, Rosa Parks, Susan B.
