This resource is a set of posters I created using the key people in history listed in the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) for 5th Grade Social Studies. Each poster includes a picture and a couple important facts about each person.
These posters were copied, laminated, and glued onto my classroom wall as a reinforcement for students when reviewing each unit.
For each history standard, the following people were selected:
SS5H1: Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Brown, Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson
SS5H3: The Wright Brothers, George Washington Carver, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt
SS5H4: Louis Armstrong, Langston Hughes, Babe Ruth, Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh
SS5H5: Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Duke Ellington, Margaret Mitchell, Jesse Owens
SS5H6: Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Benito Mussolini, Harry Truman, Rosie the Riveter, Tuskegee Airmen
SS5H7: Joseph McCarthy, Nikita Khrushchev
SS5H8: Thurgood Marshall, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy
SS5H9: George W. Bush, Barack Obama
