This week we talked about Biographies. They are nonfiction books with facts and information about a person’s life. We talked about how they are organized in the library (in alphabetical order by the person’s last name ). Sometimes they include information about the person’s entire life or up to present time if the person is still alive and sometimes they are about an important event in that person’s life.    We  read Eat My Dust: Henry Ford’s First Race (1st grade) and Who Says Women Can’t be Doctors?  The Story of Elizabeth Blackwell  by Tanya Lee Stone (2nd grade) .
