Make Biography Research Painless
Biography writing doesn’t have to be a daunting task.
In fact, it can be—dare we say it?—FUN!
With this 2-page template, your students will use the planning page to research topics like personality traits, famous quotes, and fun facts and use them to create a 3D profile cube. They then cut out the template, assemble it, and present their pop-up biography to the class.
