All of the activities in this unit (unless specified in the activity’s directions) will work for a biography book or a one page article.
At the end of the unit, I have also included a Final Project Choice Board. All 6 of the final projects on the choice board will require students to present information on a biography to their class. During presentations, others will need to record information they learned as well as ask questions of the presenters.
