TEACHING CONNECTION NOTE: This is the perfect companion to the Famous Americans booklet sold in my store! Look for the other product under BIOGRAPHIES - FAMOUS AMERICANS SUMMARY PACKET. Students use these research papers to complete simple pages about each famous American in their own words that tell the American's name, birthdate, birthplace, when they died, how they made a positive difference to our nation, and drawing a portrait of the person. This booklet also includes a page where the student will make a page about themselves - the person who just might be the next famous American to make our world a better place!
