Product Description
Students read a brief account of Theodore Roosevelt, the Rough Riders, and their charge up San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War. They answer 9 questions and complete 5 creative tasks. The creative tasks include designing a museum exhibit, the situation with TR's Medal of Honor nomination, social media, a memorial plaque/monument, and a mascot for the Rough Riders. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!

Sample questions inclue:
--Why do you think Teddy Roosevelt resigned from his Assistant Secretary position and volunteered to fight in Cuba?
--Compare and contrast the images described of Roosevelt and Hawkins. Who would you have followed into battle and why?
--Create an image to illustrate the meaning of the phrase, "a triumph of bulldog courage."
--Why do you think the Rough Riders are more frequently associated with charging San Juan Hill than their roles in the Battle of Las Guasimas or the Siege of Santiago?
