By Teachers, For Teachers
biogiraffe.org is created by teachers for teachers. We believe in teaching the social studies with biographies that help students understand the connections humans have with each other in the world. Every biogiraffe contains economic, social, political and environmental characteristics that give your students the opportunity to use the biogiraffe in a way that highlights the interconnectedness of the narrative.
Our goal is to provide free resources for teachers and create a collaborative community that showcases the power of biography in the social studies classroom. Additionally, we believe in cross-curricular application. Our biogiraffes can be used to highlight the rich history of other content areas whose history might otherwise be overlooked.
