This can be used as a getting-to-know-you, stand alone activity during the first week of school, or it can be used as a year-long project. Students begin by answering a series of questions about themselves. They can then use their answers to construct an essay using the included graphic organizer. To use throughout the year, students can periodically revise their autobiography to include writing skills learned throughout the year. Revision ideas/suggestions are included in the product.
