This FREE product is the first in my series of Guided Biography Studies. This activity focuses on a historical figure using one book chosen either by the teacher or the student who completes the biography study. While not all of the biographies will include all the information asked for, students can fill in the gaps using other books or the Internet.
Galileo is offered as a free item and is very similar in content and in style to all of my Guided Biography Studies. Each one includes:
A cover page for the student to fill out with their name and book title
A table of contents
11 general questions about the biography the student is using
5 questions about the author of the biography
4 questions about the parts of the biography
1 page for recording new vocabulary words
3 pages of “After Reading” questions which elicit both facts and opinion
A timeline graphic organizer
A 2-page Teacher Guide which includes Common Core standard alignments for Grades 4-6 (Reading Informational Text)
2 pages of an Answer Key for questions based on factual material
There is a total of 9 pages for student use.
