Lapbooks are a great tool for organizing and presenting information over many topics. This resource contains materials to create a lapbook research project over any U.S. president.
Included in this file:
43 Cover pages - One for each U.S. president
Eight rough draft pages, many with sentence starters
Eight labeled foldables which will become part of the finished lapbook
Detailed instructions with photos
Student president selection page
Daily focus recording page
With this project, students will search for specific details about a president. This includes a timeline of the president's life, challenges and accomplishments while in office, other jobs the president held, the president's educational background, his famous quotes, his childhood challenges, strengths, and hobbies, his family, and other interesting facts.
I use this with my second grade class each year, but this could also work for third, fourth, and fifth grade as well with varied levels of support.
