Looking for a different activity for you students to get to know the man, leader, and reformer Teddy Roosevelt? This is a very different activity asking your students to read and analyze the words of this great President. Students will be given quotes said by Teddy and will have to put these quotes in their own words. Students will then have to chose their favorite interpreted quote and write their version of the quote on a larger paper. I would then have all of you students turn in their completed quotes. For the next class day I would hang the students created quotes all over the classroom. Make sure you number each quote. Students will then walk around the room and place the number of the student created quote next to the Teddy quote that they feel goes together. This is a matching quote game.
Hint: If you do not want your students to see create a student created quote for each at the beginning of the activity, you could assign different small groups to a Teddy quote and have them write their own version. This will guarantee that each Teddy quote is represented in the room. When students turn in their quotes you will need them to write down the teddy quote on the back so you have an answer key to check you students completed matching worksheet.
