This activity is a short handout that allows students to find and organize basic information about Jimmy Carter. It is designed to follow a specific book [noted below], but could be made to work with a general information search online.
It relates to a Georgia Performance Standard on Jimmy Carter and a Common Core State Standard relating to informational text features.
Morgan, A. (2006). American Heroes: Jimmy Carter. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children.
For my students, I used this along with a small-group inquiry activity early in our study of Jimmy Carter. They enjoyed having the prompts and seeking out the information. We later used this to help organize an informational writing activity.
