This is a biography writing unit about the life of the famous British author, Roald Dahl. The resource is perfect for students in 3rd grade or 4th grade who are learning about Famous Authors or some of his books such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, Fantastic Mr Fox or The Witches. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.

The first lesson is interactive and involves them cutting out facts, and then sorting these facts into paragraphs. In the second lesson the children need to use these facts to write four paragraphs. Then, in the third lesson children need to choose the most important facts and include these in an introduction; after this they need to answer several questions before writing up their conclusion. In the final lesson your class will need to check their draft paragraphs for mistakes before writing up their work into a neat copy on the template provided.

NO PREP is needed!

Good luck, I hope you get some great results!

If you would like to add another lesson, download my 3rd & 4th Grade Roald Dahl Reading Comprehension Activity for just $1.50. This would give the students more background knowledge before they start writing the biography.

We also specialise in play scripts, we have a William Shakespeare collection with Richard III, Macbeth and Hamlet. And a good selection of Christmas play scripts including Elf, The Santa Clause and A Christmas Carol.
