Are you ready for President's Day??? Well then, this photo analysis activity was created especially for you....to make sure that your students get the most out of your President's Day lesson:) I took my "Picture Analysis Graphic Organizer for Historical Photographs" product and spiced it up for President's Day! Have you ever had students analyze historical pictures?? Oh.My.Goodness.....The first time I had my students do an analysis on a historical photograph, I was AMAZED at the amount of thinking they were doing. If you want to implement more critical and higher order thinking into your Social Studies / History lessons - seriously, have your students analyze a photograph. I promise, you will not be disappointed:)
