Your students will experience the unique approach of using a collaborative poster, a biography report, textual evidence, research, and the body biography project! It’s here! The wait is over!
This blank template bundle includes 3 notable person outlines or sketches for an adult female, adult male, and a child. Give your students a relevant and modern experience while promoting the 4 C’s, character traits. Leave the biography reports up all year long! I adapted the body biography concept to align with citing textual evidence, character traits, research, and inference skills.
