Michael Morpurgo Fact Cards

Michael Morpurgo's books are always popular in classrooms, so we have made a set of free printable fact cards about the author. Each page in the downloadable PDF below contains two facts and there is also a blank set of cards at the end too!

You could use these resources in the classroom in some of the following ways:

  • Use the information on the cards to make a biography about Michael Morpurgo.
  • Print the cards and add them to a classroom display about the author. Can your children help to plan and decorate the display too?
  • Give children a copy of the blank cards and ask them to make their own fact cards about Michael Morpurgo.
  • Make a list of questions that you could ask Michael Morpurgo if you could interview him.
  • Ask one child to pretend to be Michael Morpurgo. The rest of the class could interview 'Michael', who could use the information on the cards as part of the answers.
  • Ask your children to imagine that they will become a famous author in the future. What fact cards could be created about their lives?
  • Challenge children to find the places mentioned on the cards in an atlas or an online map. Can they calculate how far those places are from where they live?

If you have any other suggestions for using these resources in the classroom, please leave a comment below...
