Students will create a mini book about Ben Franklin's accomplishments in literature, science, and politics. I have included research questions and kid-friendly websites they will use to find the information. On each page, students will have a title, visual, and a summary of Franklin's accomplishment. The mini book does not require any teacher preparation other than providing students with an 11' X 17' sheet of paper. I have included a rubric. Your students will love this hands-on engaging project! Please message me if you have any questions.
*I have included both a PDF and Word Doc. Feel free to tweak the assignment to fit your classroom.
*Student instructions on how to create a mini book are included.
*The project will take 1-2 class periods depending on grade level.
