Incredible Stories of Incredible People: Biography


We can only be inspired by others if we are aware of them. Students turn back time and explore the lives of relatives, past leaders, and famous individuals in a fun-filled quest for connection. Students ask themselves questions: “What did they accomplish? What do we have in common, and how can I be more like them? What will I do now?” Students write full-sentenced, vivid paragraphs about their role models. By exploring the perseverance and creativity of past individuals, we learn that we can do it, too.
