Product Description
My first graders were reading Tomas Rivera a biography written by Jane Medina and illustrator by Ed Martinez in our Trophies series. I wanted to create a writing activity where my students could better understand what a biography is. After reading the story and discussing the genre of biography, I implemented this activity.

Step 1: Break the students up into pairs
Step 2: Students interviewed their partner and filled out the biography worksheet.
Step 3: Students copied their written biography onto another piece of paper and drew a portrait of their friend/partner.
