This is an all inclusive research project where the final product is an ABC book about a president. This can be done individually, in partners, or in small groups. This would be a useful project to teach research skills from grades 4-8.
This product contains:
Presidential Vocabulary- necessary to completing the research effectively.
President Name Cards- For selecting which student will study which president fairly.
Student research packet
ABC Book Planning Sheet- To organize and plan the final product.
ABC Book Sheets- To write and illustrate the ABC book for the president.
Rubric- For teacher grading.
Any president can be studied using this product. I recommend assigning each student or group ONE president with no duplicates in the class. Books, encyclopedias, or other research materials will be needed to complete this project.
Depending on how much time you have to allot to this assignment, it could take place in as little as a week and as much as a month. I generally gave my 5th grade classes about 2 weeks and most students finished in that time.
