Shhhhh!!! It's a secret! Your students will love inferring as the have to keep a secret while they are writing. The other students won't even realize they are learning as they are reading and inferring their classmate's writing.
Differentiated for Primary and Upper Elementary Grades
Copy one page with Abraham Lincoln and one page with George Washington for each student. Also copy one “Flap” for each student. If you would like, copy the graphic organizer.
Read books, watch videos, do cooperative strip paragraphs etc. to ensure that your students know lots of information about each president. Students can use the graphic organizer provided to plan their writing. Have students write one page about each president. Make sure they don’t use the president’s name in their writing. Then staple the flap on top of the president’s picture.. Hang on bulletin board and let the other teachers, students, etc. guess who the students wrote about. They will love the flap that covers up the picture.
I have provided color and black and white pages as well as primary and upper elementary lined paper and graphic organizers.
