When my students read a biography about George Washington, their interest was peaked into more of our nation's presidents. I had them choose a chapter biography of another president to read and take notes as they read. Then they used other print materials as well as internet resources to find more information about their president. They used this packet to help them take notes, sequence their notes and then write their own presidential biography. This packet includes:
5 pages for notes/sequencing
2 pages for drafting an introduction and conclusion paragraph
1 page with a rubric
All of the pages above come in color and black and white.
