Biographies in the Classroom

In the course of doing some research for some 4th grade teachers working on a biography project, I discovered some activities and website that I wanted to share.  Take a look at these and see if you can use them in your next project!

This is a great site for easy to read biographies to get the kids started!  There are even word helpers with sound and definitions!
