We love this biography foldable! Students use this to gather, analyze and synthesize information about a person's character, the problems he or she faced and how he or she handled them, and their accomplishments. It includes a timeline of the events and culture of the time to help students understand the context during which this person lived. A wonderful project that integrates reading, writing, and content areas.

This graphic organizer is a visual way to teach different parts to plot structure. It could be used for studying and knowing the different parts, or it could be used in correlation to a story being read for class. The downside would be that it's only a standard structure, so if the story doesn't follow it, it couldn't be used as accurately.
