Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To become familiar with the events that led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon.

TIME:
1 class period

In this lesson, students read a story about the Watergate scandal with sections entitled:

• Overview
• The Break-In
• The Cover-up
• Controversy Over Tape Recordings
• The Resignation of Nixon

Class members are then given a different version of the story about the Watergate scandal. This version is different in that many key words, names, and terms are missing. Each student will try to fill in the spaces with the missing words, names, and terms that correctly complete the sentences. The kids can find the correct answers in a list that is provided.

ACTIVITY OPTIONS:
This lesson can be turned into a fun contest between individuals, or pairs, to see who can come up with the most correct answers by the end of the period. You can also turn this into a game by dividing the class into two teams that will take turns trying to identify the correct answers as you read through the story with them.
