Bookmark Bios

By Gail Skroback Hennessey

Recently, while watching the morning news, two of the hosts couldn’t name the famous woman, from Rochester, NY, who helped women get the right to vote! One said, I think her name was Susan “something”. That got me thinking that Bookmark Bios might be a great way to introduce young people to many(not all) the famous women and men in history, STEM and Literature!

Giving the Bookmark Bios, could be a weekly activity, perhaps as a handout for an interactive notebook, after a testing period, or as a “bell ringer” before your class instruction begins. You could print the Bookmark Bios on cardstock or colored paper, cut them out and you might consider laminating them for a more durable handout.

Additionally, the included Bookmark Bio Cards might be helpful to have the students do some critical thinking!

I have also included a blank template should you wish to use the idea as a research activity where students develop their own Bookmark Bios!

Depending on the grade level, I have also highlighted possible vocabulary terms to review including activist, environmentalist and humanitarian.

Included: 20 Bookmark Bios on 5 sheets of 4 bookmarks on a page and the Bookmark Bio Card(with two on a page). You have permission to reproduce a class amount of the bookmarks and cards .
