This resource has been designed to be used in any classroom from 2nd grade through 8th grade. Younger students may need to go over answers in class, while older students may be able to find answers independently.
This download includes both the PowerPoint with the answers and various versions of the handout (in PDF and MS WORD format)
Students follow along to fill in the names of 64 important people from history (32 men and 32 women from a variety of countries and fields). This can be done at the beginning of the year as an introduction, or at the end of the year for a review. Students can complete on their own for homework or as a project, or they can follow along with the PowerPoint to fill in the names. Enjoy!
