Product Description
My Guided Biographies are designed to be used in several ways:
-- as a research activity that could be part of a larger project;
-- as a transition into writing an entirely student-created biography;
-- as an introduction to reading and evaluating informational text.

This is a bundled set of seven of my guided biographies for the following scientists and inventors: Alexander Graham Bell, Marie Curie, Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and the Wright Brothers. I also have a FREE Guided Biography study on Galileo that could be added to the set.

The preview file includes previews for Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison and the Wright Brothers.

*Please note these are not biographical texts*. Students choose a biography on a subject and complete 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.

The guided biographies consist of:
A cover page for the student to fill out with their name and book title that looks very much like the teacher’s cover page
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 8 new vocabulary words
3 or 4 pages of “After Reading” questions that elicit both facts and opinion
A timeline graphic organizer for the student to complete
A 2-page Teacher Guide which includes Common Core standard alignments for Grades 4-6 (Reading Informational Text)
Each product includes a detailed answer key for questions based on factual material
