HUGE MULTI-SKILL BIOGRAPHY UNIT!!
This resource is a high-interest unit that allows students the opportunity to really focus and research on one biography individual.
Students will start by reading one of the "Who Was?" books, on a person of their choosing.
After they will take part in the following tasks:
- Letter Writing
-Cause and Effect Essay
