Ideas For Use:
There are numerous ways to incorporate historical biography summaries into your curriculum.
Individual - Assign the biography you are studying in class. Have each person research and complete individually for class homework.
History Museum - With the biography bundles, such as the Founding Fathers Bundle, assign each student one of the 10 -15 included biographies. After completion, have each student post their completed biographies on the classroom wall like a museum for all to see. Then, print off the included “gallery-walk” reflection template. Students will complete the “gallery walk” template by reading the other completed, posted biographies. This option allows students to learn even more historical biographies.
Sub Plans - This resource is such an excellent activity for that day when you can’t be in the classroom. Your sub will appreciate this content-rich resource.
