Need a fun, hands on activity for students to review their knowledge of US presidents? These sorting mats will challenge students to recall the information they have studied and use their critical thinking skills to fill in the information they don't know. By using both hands as well as their language, visual and critical thinking skills, they will engage their whole brain during this activity.
This set contains sorting mats for all 45 presidents, divided and color coded into sets of five. Students will sort through the facts and match them to each of the five presidents in that set. There is a picture of each president and the facts include the years of presidency, party affiliation, job right before becoming president, and state of residence. There are also four additional facts per president that include information about their childhood, their adult life before and after presidency and major accomplishments during their presidency.
Which president was shot during the revolutionary war?
Who spoke English as a second language?
Who died in office after eating contaminated food?
Which two presidents have been impeached?
And so much more! An answer key is included for students to self-check their work.
Print and prep once and then use for years. Not only great for Presidents' Day, but can be used all year as part of an American History curriculum.
These mats are also part of our US Presidents Bundle: Sorting Mats and Person of The Day Cards.
