Research Options

You can assign the same number of sheets to every student or vary requirements for differentiation.

  • For the simplest research project, assign only the first page (basic information).
  • To add complexity, also assign the second page (challenges and how the person overcame them).
  • For the most complex assignment, add the third page (how history changed the person’s life, how the person changed history). To better organize this, give students the double timeline as well.

Product Options

  • Ask students to write the person’s major contribution(s) on the page with the large photo. Hang for an instant classroom display.
  • Ask students to write their research results in paragraph form on the lined pages. Hang these next to the contribution sheets.

This resource was specially designed for your classroom. Now your students can learn more about these inspirational people - and you can create an awesome bulletin board or display.

Enjoy!
