Historical Fiction StoryBuilders
Printable Writing Prompt Cards
First, students draw a historical character card such as aviator, military leader, civil rights activist, or Pharaoh. Then they can write about the famous figure of their choice.
- Perhaps they’ll have adventures with Amelia Earhart or the Wright brothers.
- Maybe they’ll battle alongside Napoleon or Attila the Hun.
- Will they fight for justice with Harriet Tubman or Rosa Parks?
- Or serve as cup bearer to King Tutankhamen or Queen Hatshepsut?
There are so many possibilities!
