BIOGRAPHY BOOK PROJECTS

Our second graders are responsible for three book projects during the course of the school year. The theme for the 3rd trimester Book Project was "Biographies."  In reading class the children read Biographies on FIVE NOTABLE INVENTORS. Their long term assignments was to read another biography of a famous person and then create a VISUAL DISPLAY as well as give an ORAL PRESENTATION on the person they chose to read about. Take a look at some of the wonderful displays created by students in our second grade classroom.

They have Bio-Cube, which is an interactive tool that invites students to develop an outline of a person whose biography or autobiography they have just read or to gather information for reports. The Bio-Cube is a useful summarizing tool that helps students identify and list key elements. It can be used as a prewriting activity as well.
