PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**PLEASE CLICK PREVIEW TO SEE MORE PAGES**

This is meant to be a culminating activity to a reading/writing unit in biography. The purpose of this specific product is to research information about a person of interest (famous person/person in history). I love to use the Who Was books for this. Product includes:

Brainstorm
Before reading questions
Organized note taking graphic organizers for during and after reading
(childhood life, family life, accomplishments, important life events, fascinating facts, reasons why they are inspirational, life lessons-what did I learn?, and possible themes).
After reading questions
Students will then compile their notes together and organize them onto the biography informational text graphic organizers. I also included a checklist for the students to complete before moving onto a final copy.

Students can be as creative as they would like. I challenged my students to think of creative ways to introduce the "idea" or topic sentence, rather than just saying "Now you will learn about their childhood." I pushed them to create sentences like "You may not think this person's childhood is very important but this person had a very interesting childhood that molded them into the famous adult we still read about." I also encouraged my students to include more evidence and examples in their writing/paragraphs rather than just straight fact after fact.

ENJOY!
