Product Description

Biographies, Bring biographies alive with these 10 creative reading response activities.  Each activity can be paired with ANY biography.  Incorporates Common Core skills such as finding main idea, author's purpose, identifying facts/opinions, comparing and contrasting, and using text evidence.

This packet works great for a biography genre study.  In my 2nd grade class I read a biography each day and then students completed an activity.  This could also be used in a reading/genre center where students would read a biography independently.  These activities are also a great way to integrate literacy with social studies.
