I recently helped a group of middle school students find information about Roberto Clemente. Gale In Context: Biography is an excellent, age appropriate resource for middle school students. The database has an easy to use interface, and search results are displayed with a comprehensive biography and a box of quick facts.
The search also provides links to images, articles, book excerpts, and encyclopedia entries.
These can be downloaded, emailed, and saved to Google drive.
If you have a middle school student who needs biographical information for a paper or project, Gale In Context: Biography is a fantastic resource.
