This worksheet is a perfect way to have students do brief biography reports on a historical figure. Depending on the grade level, it may need some modeling/scaffolding/modifying. There are 10 'body parts' that students must find information about. (e.g. - for 'MOUTH' students find a quote by or about the person, for 'EYES' students write what the visions/hopes/dreams were for the person). This is ideal to do for a HW assignment, in a computer lab with internet access, or together as a class. I have my students use a glue-stick to paste a picture of the person's head onto the picture in the middle! I use it about 7 times per school year with 7th graders. The first time takes about an hour, but they can finish one in closer to 30 minutes after they get used to it and used to my expectations :)
