To study the life of Andrew Jackson and the times in which he lived.
1 class period
My students have enjoyed learning about Andrew Jackson and other famous people by playing the MATCH GAME.
I divide the class into four teams, go over the rules, and begin. By the end of the period, the students have learned that Andrew Jackson grew up as a rough and tumble individual who later became a national war hero and President.
Easy-to-follow MATCH GAME rules are provided.
Teacher Instructions are included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to assess student progress.
The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
