PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My students always want to study someone from popular culture for their biography projects. But I want them to learn about someone from history or someone who has done something remarkable.

This is why I created this unique and complete project! This pack includes 36 nonfiction selections about people from popular culture and from history. I allowed my students to select one from each list of people. Then they created a project to compare and contrast these famous people.

ESL or Struggling Reader Option included! 7 articles are included for struggling readers or ESL students. They simply need to compare this famous person to themself.

There is a fun file folder project included. I also included a photo of a finished project. Imagine what it was like for one of my students to compare soccer player Lionel Messi with the last Pharaoh of Egypt, Cleopatra!
