I have the kids choose any biography to read. When they are done, they choose 5-10 important events in a person's life (good and bad) and write a paragraph about it. They then plot the events in a timeline with a twist. The horizontal axis tells the age of the person when the event happened. We add a vertical axis numbered from -5 to 5. The kids then need to decide whether this was a really negative event (-5), really positive event (+5), neutral event (0), or somewhere in between.
