Students will select a U.S. President and complete this research packet. They will look up his elections/campaigns, accomplishments, etc...
After the students complete the research, I have them create a visual aid that includes all of their info. This usually comes in the form of a poster or "tri-fold" board. But I do allow students to create a website, Prezi, or any other visual project that depicts all of the info.
Usually a big hit and the students always surprise me with their creativity and effort.
