What educators are saying

One of my favorite end-of-the-year activities. Students enjoyed learning about what happened the year they were born. It also made them talk to their parents or guardians. Great resource!


This autobiography template and graphic organizer is a fun resource to use throughout the school year or as an end of the year memory book project.

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!
