This 5th Grade Autobiography is the perfect memory book to complete ANY time of the year!

I use this autobiography as a final writing assignment with my fifth grade students. I bind the pages together and laminate the cover and the back page to give to students at the end of the year. It turns into a GREAT keepsake! View the preview to see an example of a final version.

This bundle includes:

1. Teacher instructions and resources

2. Five ready-made covers that students can choose from

3. 24 student pages (includes different options)

3. Template asking parents to send in a letter written to their child

4. Extra 5th grade memory book ideas for "fast finishers"

The book includes information about:

→ Students' birth and toddler years

→ Kindergarten - 5th Grade School Memories

→ Poem

→ Student Likes and Dislikes

→ Important Events From Their Birth Year

→ Thought-provoking Questions

→ Future Hopes and Dreams

I still have MY OWN "autobiography" from 5th grade, so I wanted my students to have something like that as well. They absolutely love this project!
