Digital or Printable Biography Graphic Organizer & Project! Complete through Google Slides. Use these biography graphic organizers w/ ANY report. Great support, or alternative to writing a biography essay. Use PRIMARY SOURCES to tell a story!

The Snapshots Biography is a great simplified approach or alternative to writing a complete essay. Students can summarize (GREAT PRACTICE FOR HOW TO SUMMARIZE) their research through this digital or printable visual. Students will insert (or draw) 8 pictures plus a “profile” image of their individual. They can also type a brief explanation or think of a relevant hashtag! Through ACTUAL photographs or images, students can share key details and moments from the subject of their biography. Think of the possibilities… pictures of where they were born, their family, key events, primary sources, pictures of journal entries or artifacts…etc! All is done through a simple 3 click process. 

The templates I’ve created allow the user to insert automatically scaled images into the picture placeholders, from a quick google search or from images saved to their google drive or device! These templates are so cool because not only are they SO SIMPLE to edit, but they create really visually appealing and age-appropriate results. Depending on the rigor you set these Snapshot Bios can be used in grades as young as 3rd all the way up to your high-schoolers!

You can assign this as a collaborative slide and have students interact and comment with each other. Have students present their pages with a brief explanation in the classroom or over a Zoom Call or Google Meet. Students can even share as a small group in a breakout room during a zoom call, or have 2-3 students share slides each morning as a morning meeting! No matter what type of classroom setting you are teaching in, this activity integrates seamlessly with any biography!
