               Biography writing is a great activity for kids to learn about the lives of important figures in history. It can help them to think critically about the people and events that have shaped the world. It can also be a fun way to learn about the lives of people in their own lives, like family members or celebrities. 
          
          This blog post is about a biography writing task that was assigned to my students in the classroom. The goal of the writing task was to describe Major Dhyan Chand's life events. I wanted to provide my students with an opportunity to practice their writing skills and be creative at the same time. I provided them with some guidelines and encouraged them to use their imaginations to create an exciting biographic writing poster. 

Writing Activity:
  • I instructed my students to read about the life story of Major Dhyan Chand before going to do the task.
  • Told them to gather the important events and information in his life. 
  • Once they’ve gathered enough information, told them to compile it into a timeline. This can help them to understand the order of events in his/her life.
  • If required provide them some reading books and articles about him/her.
  • Told them to prepare a rough draft.
  • Students were given colour strips and the worksheet.
  • They pasted the colour strips and write the events in order.
  • Finally, they presented their work.

                  Breaking down complex tasks into smaller, more manageable tasks is an important part of the writing process. This helps to ensure that the task is completed effectively, efficiently, and with clarity. Breaking down tasks into smaller parts enables the student to focus on one aspect of the task at a time, which can help to prevent distractions and ensure that the task is completed within the allotted timeframe.
