Product Description
ALL NEW RANKINGS!

UPDATED TO INCLUDE PRESIDENT OBAMA!

A tremendous research activity that I use to prepare students for end-of-year state assessments and Advanced Placement exams. It's a competitive, fun activity that will work for students at any grade level.

Student groups are assigned presidents to research. They then conduct a March Madness/Final Four-style bracket debate competition to decide the greatest president in U.S. History!

Presidents are seeded according to ranking surveys conducted by well-known historians. However, there are several brackets (and ways to review).

BRACKET 1: All 43 Presidents are seeded by overall rank.

BRACKET 2: All 43 presidents are seeded in the four regional brackets based on where they were born.

BRACKET 3: All 43 presidents are seeded in the four regional brackets based on the years/era in which they served (three different versions so you can choose which match-ups you like best).

BRACKET 4: Includes only presidents who served more than one term. A great way to review major presidencies.

BRACKET 5: Includes only presidents who served one term or less. A great way to dive deep into the terms of those leaders who don't normally get a lot of attention.

(NOTE: Yes, President Obama is the 44th president and I mention 43 presidents. Grover Cleveland's two non-consecutive terms are combined.)
