Product Description

Looking for a quick sub plan, e-learning day activity, or crossover project between science and social studies? This research project is perfect for President's Day, as your students will research the important scientific accomplishments made during each Presidential administration from Franklin Delano Roosevelt through Barack Obama.

Using a timeline of Presidential administrations from the online version of the scientific magazine Science, students will pick one president to profile and make a research poster about the scientific policies and accomplishments made during that era.

This would be a perfect sub plan or "work day" project, since all your students will need are the handout, internet access, and "poster project supplies"! As for teacher work, this project is as hands-off as it gets, and is perfect for students of all ages. Get the kids started and then let them go!

This project is also incredibly easy to modify to fit the needs of your students and your classroom.

  • Don't want to do posters? Need an e-learning day project? No problem! Modify this project to go fully digital by letting your students make a PowerPoint, Prezi, or video on this person instead.
  • This document is fully editable, so feel free to add, subtract, or modify any of the questions and prompts listed in the document.
  • Links are located on the Teacher Notes page.
