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.

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.

Jacques Cartier, A Guided Biography Study includes:
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
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 8 new vocabulary words
3 pages of “After Reading” questions that 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-page Answer Key for questions based on factual material.

I have bundled six explorers to Canada in one set (with savings for the buyer) - please have a look at it in my store. The explorers are: David Thompson, John Cabot, Jacques Cartier, Samuel de Champlain, Henry Hudson, and Sieur de La Salle.
