A classic Tic Tac Toe game is a quick activity and a neat way to learn more about 9 of our Presidents. Students like the fact that they have choices in their projects and can choose which ones to complete based on their skills.
(This activity is pretty self- explanatory as most students know how to complete a tic tac toe board to be a winner, thus making it a great self-directed project for those times when you need students working independently.)
A student who enjoys music and rapping may choose to make a straight line based on which box offers that as an option. An artist may prefer to illustrate the answer and choose a box accordingly.
Of the nine choices, only three need to be completed in order to earn a completed grade! The answers are also fun to share with the class and offer a great opportunity for a quick public speaking of sharing their projects and reasons. Everyone is a winner as we all learn about all 9 presidents!
This activity can be completed in a week, with one project per day, and 1-2 days for presentations in class.
