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 published 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.

This resource focuses on the great inventor Thomas Edison and includes:

A cover page for the student to fill out with their name and book title
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 which 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 pages of an Answer Key for questions based on factual material

I have many guided biographies available in my store including inventors, scientists, and writers. This resource on Newton is also part of a bundled set of 7 scientists and inventors that includes: Alexander Graham Bell, Marie Curie, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton and the Wright Brothers. The price of the set is a third less than the units bought individually. The bundle may be seen here:

Please have a look at my FREE Guided Biography Study on Galileo – it is very similar in scope and design. It can be seen here:
