Ideas for Using Garden of Praise Lessons

Biographies for Kids (Famous Leaders for Young Readers) includes over 100 biographies written just for young students. The vocabulary is on an elementary level and children will enjoy reading about famous people. There are research links for the student who wishes to learn more about the person.

For each biography there are worksheets and printable activities as well as online activities. Your child might enjoy a word search, crossword puzzle, scrambled words, alphabetical order page, or a jigsaw puzzle. We also have Online Tests. A teacher or parent can register and allow the students to take the tests which will be graded by the computer. The test grades can then be printed out.

Famous Paintings give the student an opportunity to learn about world-famous artists and their work. There is a picture of each work to color and he/she might want to try different mediums to create an original picture in the style of the selected artist. Each lesson includes free printable and online activities such as crossword puzzles and word searches, and computer graded tests.
