We know their names but we need to know who they REALLY were as men.
This product gives students an opportunity to characterize these men by analyzing their accomplishments and their personal stories.
This is great for VISUAL learners. It could be used as a preview, an overview or a culminating activity or summative assessment. It also provides an excellent outline for writing and thesis development
Each Power Point slide features an editable text box with spaces for images, quotations, relevant accomplishments/biographical information and a fun fact. It then prompts students to provide 4 adjectives to describe the Founding Father.
You can duplicate the slides and alter the categories as you wish.
