This is a booklet I have designed to be used by the teacher and/or students in order to enhance instruction for a unit on Presidents. I have used this unit as a study to follow a unit on government. I find it helps students understand the roles of the Executive Branch. Similarly, I have used this unit before and during President's Day.
Each president presented in the unit has its own page with illustrations and photos to help with the historical information provided. Pertinent vocabulary is in bold print and highlighted on each page. The file also corresponds to a unit test I have developed to assess students on each person from the booklet. I also have a vocabulary quiz available and am developing a PowerPoint presentation to accompany the unit as well.
I have used this booklet to correspond/supplement various educational videos found through such resources as BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr., and YouTube.
