Is it difficult for your students to do research? Do they whine when you tell them they will have to write a report on what they research? Well, here's a solution to make boring research fun - Biography Tic Tac Toe!
Students can choose activities to demonstrate what they've learned about a famous person or important historical figure.
Use as traditional tic tac toe choice board and have students complete 3 in a row. Or shake things up and have students complete 4 corners or even randomly choose a set number of assignments.
Several of the assignments require students to make a product from the point of view of the historical figure. What a great way to promote deep research and deep thinking!
The Tic Tac Toe board can also be used as an enrichment activity for early finishers or as an extension activity to an existing biography unit.
The Biography Tic Tac Toe choice board is included in this product: Upper Elementary Biography Unit - 20th Century Americans for Only $4!
