Biographies Research: Rock Star Biography Research Booklets
NOTE: THERE ARE NO PASSAGES with these. They are simply to use with books you find in your library or by using internet resources. Thanks you.
Make Biography Booklets for 24 rock stars! What a fun way to implement some non-fiction reading and research into your classroom.
Looking for a research project for your students? They are sure to love these little biography booklets. I have marked these for grades 4-5, but please use your best judgment in deciding if they will work for you. They may be suitable for older kids depending on their level and even possibly third grade if they are a tad more advanced.
Each booklet is one piece of paper printed on the front and back. The cover has cute rock star graphics, the rock star’s picture (black line) along with the name of a rock star. Click on the preview above to get a better idea of what they look like.
On the side, the students will fill in the following information:
*Birthday and Death (if applicable)
*Three Frames to show a ‘movie’ from their life (illustrations and sentences)
*Character Trait with evidence from life
The rock stars included are:
**No name version is also included
These brochures can be used in a variety of different ways. Maybe you want to check out books from the library on each of the rock stars and have the students complete them during a literature center. Maybe you could bookmark some websites and involve your media specialist in helping kids research using the websites along with other media materials. Maybe use it as an at-home research projects. Be creative and use in your classroom however works best for you.
NOTE: As with all rock stars, they have all pretty much engaged in behaviors that may not be deemed appropriate. I am sure you already do this, but I would suggest to closely monitor books and websites related to the singers. BUT, if your media center is like mine, they have many age appropriate books on stars like these that kids are interested in. Good luck and have fun. :-)
ALSO, if you notice any names spelled incorrectly or other typos, please do notify me before you rate the product (per TpT's suggestion), and I will get that corrected and ready to redownload ASAP... Thank you ahead of time.
