I created this activity to go with my new 2nd grade basal. We are reading about Abraham Lincoln and our writing assignment was to write a mini biography. The lap book includes an activity for students to share what they know, create a time line using text evidence, write two interesting facts, a graphic organizer for the biography, and a place to write a final draft. The leveled reader is included for students to get information from. The timeline activity is differentiated for approaching, on, and advanced learners. There is a key for the time line.
