These famous people graphic organizers can be used to help your students practice their internet research skills.
These famous people graphic organizers are designed to help your students develop their research skills.
Helping students learn how to research and record answers is a skill that can be difficult. It is also a very important skill for students to have in today’s world.
It can be overwhelming for students to narrow down search results and find accurate and meaningful information when they practice searching.
We feel that providing students with practice with the skill of researching is meaningful practice.
We have created a very specific set of graphic organizers for beginning research and writing about famous people.
For students who might be overwhelmed by searching for the answers, it might be a good idea to help them as they begin. You might guide students who need a little more help to a specific site where they can find the needed information. Other students might be able to research on their own without the guidance.
Remember to differentiate for your students so that each has a task that fits their needs.
Each of the 8 organizers has a different focus, but is presented in the same format. These will give students a foundation for their knowledge of the person they are learning about.
For each topic, we have created a two page graphic organizer for students to record the important facts they find.
For the picture spot, you might have students draw a picture or print one they find when researching.
It might simply be a starting point, or could be an outline from which the students write a biography.
