This is a four page packet about Gail Devers, past Olympic runner. This is modified from a 7th grade play about Gail Devers. I modified this for my students who are on about a first grade level. It is very simplified with simple sentence structure and some picture clues.
On the first page, students draw a picture of Gail running. This can be used as a cover for a biograpical report.
The notes are on the next three pages. Students can copy the notes directly to work on handwriting or they can use the notes as a summary of the story. This is a great option for students who have to do a biography report for a general education reading class.
