Faux Facebook Profile Worksheet

Students create a facebook style profile with this worksheet. It is in Word format so it can be edited to fit different topics. Everwhere it says “Heading” can be edited. Some suggested uses include: author, novel character, historical figure or artist profiles. Even math concepts can be explained with their own profile. I’d love to hear how this page is being used.

    I love the facebook profile! I would love to use it for my first week back to school! However, it only lets me view it as a read only! Is there another way that I can access it so I can tweak it!

    Thank you

      Click on the Word icon to download, then once you have to document open, you can edit it everywhere it says “Heading.”

  2. Tammi says:

    Nope. Still says read only even when I click the word icon. Ideas?

    This looks really cool and I want to use it!

    • Admin says:

      Hmmm. I can’t seem to recreate this problem, but I will look into it and get back to you soon. Sorry.

    I made my own to use when we study A Christmas Carol to teach characterization, but love that it’s much nicer looking than mine!! 🙂

    I have Word 2010 and it only downloads in 2007 so I can only read only….is there a way to get it to word 2010?

    • Admin says:

      Justin, try this link. It is in Open Document format, and hopefully it will work for you. Unfortunately, I don’t have access to Word 2010. Please let me know if it works.

    I love this. My students (4th grade) are working on an autobiography and I was looking around for a great sheet to tying in they will love it.

    I’ll be using this together with novel analysis: Students try to get into a character’s head by imagining how their Facebook profile would look like. Thanks a million!

    Wonderful resource! I plan on using it as a worksheet for my Psychology students to evaluate their social media reputation from their electronically mediated communication (Facebook Profiles) based on some assigned readings – http://mashable.com/2011/10/23/how-recruiters-use-social-networks-to-screen-candidates-infographic/ Thank you for sharing!

    My co-teacher created something similar and we used it during our study of Explorers. The students had to pick one of the explorers, like DeSoto and create his “fakebook” page. The kids loved it! 8th Grade Social Studies.

  12. Edwina Langaster says:

    I will use this for the short story unit to get into the character’s heads. thank so much.

    Wow! What a great worksheet. I am using it as a project for biomes. The student have to select a biome and create a “fakebook” page. This is a great resource. Thanks!

    I used this while student teaching. I was teaching the composers of the Baroque era in music to my third graders. Each composer got their own “Facebook page” and the students read short biographies of each composer and filled in the Facebook page for each.

    I’d like to use this for an AP/IB French class for students to present about a French/French-speaking scientist or scientific organization. I’d like to try to change some of the headings to French. I was able to change some of them (Ex: My Page to “Ma Page”, but for some reason I wasn’t able to change the other headings (Friends to “Amis” for example. I’d really like to use this in class before the end of the semester (end of January). If I can change the headings, I’ll send you back a copy in MSWord.
    Thanks! Merci beaucoup!

    • Admin says:

      I’m not sure why you can’t change the headings. I can edit a copy of the file for you if you can let me know what headings to change.

    Hello. I found this template very useful for our Martian identities while we read “THE Martian Chronicles.” Students made masks for their Martian personas and are writing their characters’ backgrounds and such. The Facebook idea was genius. Thanks for the template.
