“What is a biography?” I hear you ask – well “bio-” means life, and “-graphy” means to write, or present. A biography is a type of writing that tells the story of someone’s life. It’s like a history book about one person. Biographies usually include important events in the person’s life, like where and when they were born, where they grew up, and what they did that made them famous.
Using PEEL Paragraph structure I would like you to write a biography about a famous New Zealander of your choice.
Bronze: One Paragraph
Silver: Two Paragraphs
Gold: 3+ Paragraphs
