Using this interactive, students will create a digital idea map, or graphic organizer, to identify themes and ideas connecting the biographies of one or more Wisconsinites. Students can email, print or create a link of their finished idea map.
This resource is part of Wisconsin Biographies -- a collection of free educational, online media resources to enrich your social studies and literacy curriculum, using the stories of famous people in Wisconsin history. Educational materials include short animated videos, leveled ebooks and printable books, cross curricular online activities for students, a gallery of historic images, and teaching tips (short, flexible lesson plans) tied to fourth grade academic standards. Students can define, analyze, compare and contrast historical figures, time periods, eras and themes, including westward expansion, slavery, women’s suffrage, innovation, and civil rights.
This interactive resource is designed for use in elementary and middle schools, and for kids at home.
