“I am” Biography Series by Brad Meltzer BUNDLE:
Brad Melter has created an incredible series of “I am” biography books for young people. This bundled product includes 17 individual literature companions for his series titled Ordinary People Change the World.
Due to the importance of the messages embedded in these stories, I’ve created these activities for 2nd-4th graders (as opposed to early primary grades). These “I am” biography books provide a fabulous segue for discussions about how ordinary people can change the world. With a growth mindset component in each product, your students can also have discussions about how these influential people exhibited a growth mindset. In addition, these books also provide a perfect platform for reviewing grade level language arts skills.
Each literature unit includes multiple opportunities for students to reflect, write, and learn new skills. There are engaging activities related to the historical figure highlighted in each book. Most activities require no preparation, while a few activities do require students to have scissors, glue, or other items. Each literature unit also contains an original biography about the person highlighted in the book. The comprehension questions are perfect for literacy stations, small group activities, or for literature circles.
Please click on the individual products below to see a detailed list of what is included in each unit. Each product does contain a biographical sketch, comprehension questions, skills practice pages, writing prompts, and an additional (and unique) fun activity or craft that coincides with the book.
