A rigorous, scaffolded, clear cut biography report that will have your students researching and writing about the life of any person you choose! They will then culminate the biography with a fun project where they create a hanger person likeness of the biography subject!
Your students will first go through the complete writing process, with a great deal of scaffolding found in the form of Prewriting Graphic Organizers. Students will write their rough draft, then piece it all together to write a final draft.
After, the students will then create a "hanger person", using an actual hanger, in the likeness of the biographical subject.
Both the Biography and the Hanger Person have rubrics. The Biography has a writing checklist, as well as all the Common Core standards for grades 3 - 6.
Everything is suitable to run off and give to the students, with no need to cut and paste or make alterations. The standards are even ready to go on the board!
