Use these 26 biography report templates so students can research famous people in American History. These short-term research projects help the student practice research, note-taking and writing while using technology. Finding facts about historical figures is easy using the included QR codes. The biography research templates include pages for note taking and publishing the biography.

HOW IT WORKS
These biography templates focus on 26 famous people who had a major impact on US History (from 1492 — present). Each biography template has 4 pages. The student will use QR Codes (or a list of websites) to research the famous person. Students will take notes and then organize the information to complete the following in the template:

On page 1, is a b/w photograph of the famous person which serves as a cover
On page 2, the student will find essential facts, a famous quote and infer or find character traits for the famous person
On page 3, the student writes a mini-biography of the famous person (ability to add more paragraphs is available in the Extras pages)
On page 4, the student will create a timeline with 6 important dates and their significance.

The pages are then cut and trimmed and stapled together as a book/tablet. The book can be shared in many ways, including an oral presentation, audio recording, class library, etc. Scoring guides are included. Some of the pages also include the QR code so others can also scan the code and find out more about the historical figure.
