Product Description
Andrew Jackson Fight Card Poster Project

Andrew Jackson was well-known for his combative personality and made countless enemies with the opponents he took on politically.

In this activity, students will work in groups to analyze one of Jackson’s feuds (Vs. the National Bank, Caucus System, Native Americans, etc.) by creating a Boxing Fight Card to represent that quarrel.

My students always love the creativity involved in coming up with a slogan ("The Hickory Stick Vs. The Republican Pick!") and visual to represent his fight. They then present the feud to the class as a boxing promoter, describing the opponents "tale of the tape" and who they think will win & why.

This makes for one of the most entertaining classes of the year! It also helps cover important topics like the Indian Removal Act, Bank War, Caucus System, and National Debt!

This download includes a directions page, 2-page biography reading on Jackson, rubric, and sample poster!

This download includes both printable and Google Docs versions of the activity! If you're in a paperless classroom or just want to integrate more digital resources, you can use the provided link to bring this resource into Google Classroom!

The editable Google Docs version also features links to online resources about each of Jackson's "feuds" so students can conduct online research!

For an excellent companion lesson to this activity, please see this PowerPoint on the Age of Jackson!
