My own classroom was about Louisiana's Governors but you could use this "mini-booklet" for any state or area. My student's always loved it since it never required them to do a major writing or research to get a grade. But it did require some work and artwork on their part. I NEVER allowed students to do the same governor, or in our case, the current governor.
Generally, I could make two to three classes to do different governors before having students do the governors over again. It meant my student's would cover different time periods. I tended to give the French to one class, the Spanish to another, while the state governors were spread out over two classes.
After they were done, colored, written in ink, and graded; I would post them around the room or in the hallway for others to see. My student's loved to compare notes on out someone else did this very simple assignment. Try it out on your own state's governors and see how it works for you and your students.
I did not put lines on the pages due to the fact that it would 'limit' what my students would/could write. I made my notes to them very light just to give them notes as to what to write on what page. Nothing is written in 'stone' and I was open to what they created.
