This project is the perfect way to merge writing and social studies! Students are given a Georgia famous American to become an expert on. Then, they are to choose three things from each section and put it into an expository piece.
This project has an independent research worksheet packet and a guided research worksheet packet for each famous American.
The famous Americans included in this project are specifically for Georgia. They align with the new social studies standards that will begin in 2017-2018.... but never fear! You could still use this in 2016-2017.

- Standards Wall signs
- Character trait definitions
- Independent research worksheets
- Guided research worksheets

- Writing paper for publishing
