PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Research 35 different children's authors - assign one to each student, or follow a group study format where everyone studies the same person. If you keep interactive journals, the flip-flap books are a good option. If you would prefer a poster format, I have included that as well. This would also work well as an initial activity leading up to a wax museum night. In addition to the poster and flip-flap book options, there are also a mini-book option (same format as my Create-A-Book series) and graphic organizer options.
