I have used this format with my third graders. They love the short stories and are very interested in the selection of athletes. The stories are great for CLOSE reading activities! The writing worksheets are helpful to get students started on important parts of each person. Some students have a hard time decided what to write, that is why I started each sentence off for them. Some webs are harder than others, but you can decide which ones you want to use first. After they complete the web, I model how to write a detailed paragraph by using the graphic organizer. The athletes include: Roberto Clemente, Jim Abbott, Bethany Hamilton, Jesse Owens, and Pat Tillman. That gives you the sports: running, surfing, baseball, and football. If you like this product, I have several more sets on my page.
