This cute power point packs a punch with informational paragraphs about presidential pets, Thomas Nast, The Crossing of the Delaware, and rules about who may run for president. But, don't let me tell you what the passages are about, that's the job of your students when they determine the main idea.
Students will be given an "I will" statement and then they will be guided through practice passages to help them find the main idea, a check for understanding, and an exit ticket at the end of the lesson.
