Each "mini biography" I have last about a week. Day 1: I introduce my newest hero and we fill in the portrait section, write when the hero is born and what their jobs were. Day 2: We always discuss character traits in depth and how we can apply it to our lives. Then we fill it in on the bio page. Day 4: We write our favorite thing that that we have learned so far about this American hero Day 5: Write 3 facts that we have learned about that hero! The best part is you can go at a pace that works for your kids!!
