This Presidents Project allows students to CHOOSE their own way of sharing their knowledge about our American Presidents. The projects showcase students' talents and interests! Students are able to select between 16 varied projects. No more 20 posters! Students can get creative and show off their abilities!

Students will choose a president to research. Each project, no matter the project medium chosen, has the same research requirements and requires student writing based on their research. The pages in the project walk students through each step of choosing and researching their person to provide the background they need for making their Presidents Projects the best that they can be.

2 different rubrics are included! The rubrics are tweaked a little based on the project that the student chooses.

⇔There are 2 options for this Presidents Project. You can do the work in class OR you can send the project home with your students. I have included Parent Letters for both options along with listing what pages to copy for each option.

Included is one completely EDITABLE Parent Letter that you can compose for your parents and their specific needs. The other Parent Letters have an EDITABLE due date and signature!
