The PowerPoint is a structured guide to the lesson with timings which can be used alongside the planning page and other activities. I used this as a follow up to a solo talk the children prepared on a famous person for their 1960's topic. The PowerPoint and Planning Page were created by myself. The biography example is a photocopiable example from the TimeForKids website which I adapted to meet the Success Criteria I was teaching. This was created for my Primary 5 class. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
