This Essential Supplemental includes a sample mini-biography, biography note taking packet, biography checklist, and template. The kids loved researching a famous person and creating their own mini-biography. I had students hand write their notes/research. I made the template a shared google document for them to copy, rename, and word process their final copy. This will be a printable template but you can easily copy and paste into a google document if you wish. An extension for this project would be to have students dress as their famous person as an oral presentation.
