Teaching Tips

    * Use the books to introduce a famous American, or use as reinforcement for subject matter you’ve already covered.
    * Walk children through each page of the minibook and complete them as a group. Older students might be able to work independently.
    * Have children work in pairs to complete the mini-books, then have one child read the biography out loud.
    * Have children color the mini-books.
    * Invite children to bring them home and share with their families.
    * Copy the songs onto chart paper.
    * Sing the songs whenever you have a few minutes to spare!
