These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Biography topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Family History

Have your child choose a relative for a subject of a biography. They can choose a relative from history or one who is alive today. Your child may want to choose an older relative and interview them to learn more about his or her history. Help your child through the writing process. Your child can continuously update the biography with major events that occur in the subject’s life. Your child may also want to write biographies on other family members and put them in a collection to create a family biography.

Biography Without Words

Challenge your child to create a biography of someone without using words. He or she may want to pantomime major events that happened in the subject’s life or draw pictures, paintings, or a comic to chronicle a person’s life. Encourage your child to be creative!
