This set of trifold brochures features 37 black historical and modern figures that have contributed to history in various ways. These brochures are a perfect way to ensure your students are keeping their information organized and focusing on the most important aspects of the person they're studying. This activity is great for biography projects and can easily serve as a note-taking tool for an essay or presentation. It can also serve as the biography project itself! The brochures are perfect for integrating literacy into other subjects, especially social studies. Students will not only benefit from the experience of learning about these diverse figures, but they'll practice their mapping and timeline skills as well. The brochures allow students to go beyond reading to really interact with the chosen text as they determine which facts are relevant. The biography brochures can be used year round, but they are perfect for Black History Month.
Each trifold brochure has space for the following information about each figure:
•Important people in their lives
•Childhood (how and when did they grow up?)
•Education & career
•Challenges they faced
•Major life events (includes timeline component)
•Where are/were they from? (includes mapping component)
•What lesson(s) can you learn from them?
•What set them apart from others who lived during their time
•Glossary/Words to Know
•Resources where you can learn more
This set includes the following 37 figures:
I recommend printing the brochures using the "Actual Size" setting on your printer for maximum fit. You can also scale to fit if needed.
Please note that these brochures come in black and white. If you are interested in a set of them in color, please just let me know (email@example.com).
