Presidents: Biography Brochures for 12 Presidents
Looking for a research project for your students? They are sure to love these little brochures. I have marked these for grades 3-5, but please use your best judgement in deciding if they will work for you. They may be suitable for younger or older kids depending on their level.
Each brochure is a double-fold (fold left and right to center of paper) brochure. On the front you will find decorative patriotic bunting, a president's name, and their picture. On the inside there are places to fill in the following information: family info., Presidency info. , Life summary (large section in middle), fun fact, and place for an illustration. On the back is a boxed off section with no lines for you to specify what they should include. There is decorative flag bunting at the top of the back.
***You can also choose to put glue on the back and glue into your interactive notebooks. They will work perfectly for that!
The presidents included are:
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Franklin D. Roosevelt
John F. Kennedy
These brochures can be used in a variety of different ways. Maybe you want to check out books from the library on each of the presidents and have the students complete them during a literature center. Maybe you could bookmark some websites and involve your media specialist in helping kids research using the websites along with other media materials. Be creative and use in your classroom however works best for you.
