Who Was Walt Disney? Biography


This free unit study is a small taste of the BookShark way of learning—reading great books and then talking about them.


The Walt Disney study is designed around the illustrated children's biography Who Was Walt Disney? by Whitney Stewart. While it is not included as part of the free offer, you can purchase a copy on the BookShark website. (Or check your public library for a copy!) 


Many parts of the free unit study can be enjoyed without the biography. Or you can choose some other biography, documentary, or online source of facts about Disney instead.
