Famous Missourians Report/Project - 4th Grade

Print Sources - We have biographical books about many of the famous Missourian's you will be researching. To find them, go to the Biography section in the library and look on the spine (edge) of the book. The spine label will have a 'B' for biography. Underneath the 'B' will be two letters indicating the first two letters of the person's last name that the book is about. For example, a book about Mark Twain will have a spine label that has a 'TW' underneath the 'B'.
