When creating biographies, it's both interesting and fun to learn about people’s lives when they were growing up, as everyone’s childhood is unique. In addition, one’s education says a lot about them and shapes who they become when they are older. For this activity, students will create a storyboard that highlights the date and place of birth, childhood, and education of the person they are researching. The finished product can be used as the base for a larger biography project, and makes a great tool to organize information as they're researching!
