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.
Flip-flap book (2 options)
Mini-book (aka Create-a-Book): Create an 8 page book, fill in the blanks and illustrate.
Graphic Organizers (5 included)
35 Black and white images of children's authors
35 Color images of children's authors
Follow up scavenger hunt
Timeline printables if you which to display the research projects on a timeline wall.

About the Seller
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.
