Product Description

I was teaching a class to both 2nd-5th Graders and 6th-8th Graders at two different times, and using the Who Was Biographies for both classes. I wanted a way to hand out different Biographies to every group, and still come up with a fun way to encourage kids to research their person, without making it tedious. So, after looking all over the internet, I concluded that this product didn't exist and I made one up! I give you the Biography Scavenger Hunt. Appropriate for most grades from 2nd Grade and Up, perfect for a solo project or, as I used it, a Group Game. I handed this out to each group, along with a biography of a famous woman. They had 45 mins to get as many blanks filled in as possible. The last few minutes of class, each group got to share and we tallied up the points. (Plus, every group learned about every book this way!)

This is a PDF of the document. I also have it listed as an editable document, if you need to change it up!
