Second Grade Biographies

The second graders have been continuing to study people who make a difference, and have learned just how diverse that group can be. From sports stars to inventors to activists, there are so many extraordinary people who make an impact in our lives.

As part of their assignment, every student learned about six people who made a difference in their lifetime – people like Harriet Tubman, Marie Curie, Louis Braille, and Thomas Edison.

Then students picked one person to study in depth, and created a biography report about their lives. They included important dates, key moments from childhood and adulthood, and details about the person’s accomplishments and the legacies they left behind.

We hope learning about these amazing people will inspire our second graders, whom we know will go on to be people who make a difference themselves!
