Use this informational worksheet to help fourth and fifth graders learn about Misty Copeland. Students will read a brief biography of Misty Copeland, the first African American woman to become a principal dancer for the American Ballet Theatre. Then, using what they've learned from the text, children will answer several nonfiction comprehension questions, in addition to using a map of the United States to indicate the places the dancer has lived. This inspiring biographical worksheet is a great way to give children practice reading nonfiction and making connections between key ideas and events.
