I use these every Monday for bell work in my U.S. History class. They are our #MCM (Man Crush Monday)! (See my free offering - Weekly Bellwork with Fun Hashtags!)
This list includes name, birth and death date, and a brief description of what each person (there are a few women) did to make him/her famous!
It is a great way to introduce students to a new influential American each week or take the numbers off and challenge your students to rank small groups of Americans and see if they match! Use higher level thinking and have them justify their rankings!
