My oldest is a huge fan of historical fiction, so over the years, I’ve assigned biographies for her to read along side her favorite fiction books. To record the pertinent information about the figure she researches, she uses this handy Biography Report Form/Organizer. It’s a simple research tool that older kids can use when they need to research a specific person.
Teens can complete the form to outline a historical figure’s life or they can use the information they find as a jumping off point for a longer writing assignment.
It’s a great tool that is useful not only while you’re studying history, but in any school subject.

It’s important for kids to spend time in nature, observing the natural world they live in. A wonderful way for your teens to record what they’ve discovered is by keeping a nature journal. If you’re new to nature journaling, this handy calendar of ideas from Heather is a great place to begin.
