Are your students writing biographies? This worksheet is a great way for them to get a gist about their person's life, especially if it's someone they have never heard of before. It will also help lead them to collecting the most important information about their person when they do their research instead of printing off pages of information they don't really need.
This can be used as a starting point when students of any age begin researching.
1. Younger students = this may be the only information they need to collect before putting it together into paragraphs.
2. Older students = this may be the information they collect first. Then, they can choose something they learned about the person to dig deeper about.
