The student activities in this mini lesson can be used as an introduction, a short study or a review of the first five Presidents of the United States. In theory, it would be nice to use the materials as an introduction to the first five Presidents followed by an in depth study of each man. However, in today’s world of education that may not be possible because of test preparation, etc. I would use it to introduce the first five followed by short lessons highlighting some of the important events of their presidencies. I have selected the more important accomplishments and failures of their tenures in office for the chart but have not given a lot of details about them. I would use the chart as a base and provide more information where I felt it was necessary.
