Biography Pals

I had the sweetest grandmother this year and last year. She saved and donated water bottles last year that we turned into planters. This year she saved and donated 16 oatmeal containers. I racked my brain as to what to do with them. After searching a bit on Pinterest, I finally came up with the best idea for them!

My students picked one of our historical figures required in first grade to research. They used Pebble Go to research, find facts, and write a paragraph about what they learned. I used a set I found on TPT from What I Have Learned. It was amazing for writing a scaffolded research paper for my firsties!

After the researched and wrote, they were given their oatmeal container. I wrapped it in white paper and let them create their person on it. I think this adorable Benjamin Franklin was my favorite!!
