Using Biographies to practice Expository Writing
This resource is meant to be used for elementary classrooms grades 2-4. However, some of these graphic organizers and tips can very well be modified to fit a homeschooler or used as a template for higher grade levels.
This project packet is focused on the written part of the project. However, this project can easily be turned into a typed piece using your preferred form of document sharing. (For example, Google Docs).
A biography project lasts anywhere from 4-6 weeks depending on how often the students work on the project and how fast they work. Four-six weeks is just a suggested time frame but can be modified to fit your school's curriculum guide.
Included in this packet:
- Short step by step

- Biography timeline organizer
- Expository Essay Format Instructions
