Product Description
Have your students read and write about whether or not they think they would be a good President! They will read two nonfiction articles that both discuss some of the most important jobs that a President has; then, they will complete a graphic organizer which helps them plot out their 3-paragraph opinion essay. Once you've read over their drafts, give them the cute patriotic-themed stationery to write their final copy on, and grade them using the included rubric. This is a great resource to use around President's Day, Election Day, or whenever you study government!
