Product Description

Looking for heroes worthy of your children's admiration? Here are 80 People of Purpose whose stories will inspire children and provide the kind of real-life models they need. These people of purpose come from diverse occupations, from different parts of the world, from our recent past and living present, and all have made a difference in our world. Their stories challenge students to consider their own character and potential. A brief biography of each person is followed by activities in reading and social studies that promote critical thinking and writing. Use these biographies in countless ways--as a bridge for further reading, in various content areas, as an independent or group activity, as recreational reading! Some of the people covered in this book are: Abigail Smith Adams, Jane Addams, Susan B. Anthony, Corazon Aquino, Simon Bolivar, Louis Braille, Jacques Cousteau, George Washington Carver, Albert Einstein, Amelia Earhart, Anne Frank, Martin Luther King, Jr., Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington
