This .zip file contains everything you need for a research paper and an oral report about a president! Teach research skills through the research paper, practice public speaking through the oral report, and showcase your students' creativity by having them design a campaign poster!
Students randomly draw a president (cards are included, or you can assign) and research the president in school and at home.
Using a pre-write sheet, they take notes on their president and document their sources. The included rubric makes it easy to grade the final reports!
From this research, students develop a short speech to present to the class while dressed as their president. A rubric and instruction sheet are also included for this portion of the project.
*Bonus Activity (Instructions and Rubric Included):* Students design a campaign poster for their president. The directions are geared towards a computer project, but this could easily be adapted for use without a computer!
