Product Description

Learn about your favorite authors in books and online, then use these resources to summarize and present your findings! Can be used in conjunction with a was museum event.

Research 35 different children's authors - assign one to each student, or follow a group study format where everyone studies the same person. If you keep interactive journals, the flip-flap books are a good option. If you would prefer a poster format, I have included that as well. This would also work well as an initial activity leading up to a wax museum night. In addition to the poster and flip-flap book options, there are also a mini-book option (same format as my Create-A-Book series) and graphic organizer options.

Poster template
Mini-book (aka Create-a-Book): Create an 8 page book, fill in the blanks and illustrate.

About the Seller

Meredith Anderson
(9 Reviews)

As a former engineer and current homeschooling parent, I love creating fun and practical-life math units as well as hands-on math and science experiments! You can read about some of the experiments and activities we've done on my momgineer blog, or like my Facebook page for updates. I have two very curious home learners that keep me on my toes constantly creating new activities and games, as this is how they best learn. I primarily create these materials for them for our homeschool classroom, but I have also created units for other homeschooling families.
