A service of the Wisconsin Educational Communications Board
Wisconsin Biographies is a new collection of free educational, online media resources to enrich your social studies and literacy curriculum, using the stories of famous people in Wisconsin history. Educational materials include short animated videos, leveled ebooks and printable books, cross curricular online activities for students, a gallery of historic images, and teaching tips (short, flexible lesson plans) tied to fourth grade academic standards. Students can define, analyze, compare and contrast historical figures, time periods, eras and themes, including westward expansion, slavery, women’s suffrage, innovation, and civil rights.
This interactive resource is designed for use in elementary and middle schools, and for kids at home.
