To summarize national and foreign events which occurred during the administrations of James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Jackson.
1-2 class periods
There are four sections in this activity (one for each presidential administration of Madison, Monroe, Adams, and Jackson). Within these sections, students will read through a series of sentences arranged in chronological order and fill in the missing word, name, or term from a list that is provided.
As the teacher, you can decide whether to use this activity as a contest, a game with competing teams, or an assignment for individuals. Class members might be given the option of working with one other student (always very popular in my class!) or by themselves.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress.
The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
