Biography or character report. LOVE IT! For all of my teacher friends... Money is tight these days.. A very good alternative to dressing up like the person! Would have never thought this idea!

Matchbook Chapter Summaries for Novel Studies. Would be awesome for extension or high level book clubs!!!!

Turn historical figures into Wanted Figures. This can especially effective if you have students take the point of view of one side of a war or battle. Why would the English put George Washington on a Wanted Poster?

Wax Museum: Biography Research Report for 3rd - 6th Grade

This 20 page Wax Museum Project will help your students create an amazing biography research report on a famous American. The culminating part of the project is an amazing Wax Museum, where students dress up as the person they have learned about and stand “still”, like a Wax Museum, until someone walks up to them and presses the “button” on their backdrop. Then students give a short 3 - 4 sentence speech about that person's life. Great learning experience for kids and good P.R. $

Timeline: Middle and South America History

Timeline clothespins: This would be so cool to have each student add the famous person's name and the birth year of the person he/she studied. Great discussion starter.

biography hangers (made of clothes hangers) - the kids might have to do a biography report one day.

Interactive Reading Response Notebook: Getting Started and Beyond

Reading Response Notebook: Getting Started!

I see this as something you could use for ESOL students!!!! Quadrama-Teacher used it for summarizing strategy. Also can be used for a Social Studies or Science unit.

This was a sub plan. My students made a "Facebook" page on JS Bach. They read two biography pages about him and filled out a FB page. Work was displayed in the hall. I found the template on freeology.com.
