Interviewing a Friend

In the month of February, we will be reading a number of biographies for black history month.  We will then move into a biography buddy project where the students pick a famous/historical figure and write their own biography about them.  After they do the write up, the kids will create a "buddy" version of their person.  This is really cute and I will be sure to post pictures of a few after they are complete.

I decided to create this to help kick off the biography study.
Click on the picture to go to my TPT store and get a copy.

I am going to have the children interview each other in class.  They will then practice writing a short biography about their person and present them to the class.

This will be a great way to begin discussing biographies and help them learn the important components before the big project.
