This bundle of activities on American Presidents contains eight reading comprehension activities ; seven biography writing units and two discussion based writing units.
42 Lessons, or 42 hours of activities, with NO PREP needed!
Firstly, there are eight close reading activities, or informational texts, about:
John F. Kennedy
These activities require NO PREP and have a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers. Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of each document.
Secondly, there are seven biography writing units about Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Roosevelt. These units have been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.
Finally, there are two discussion based writing units. One discussing who was the most influential early US President, and another discussing who was the most influential President from the 1900s. These units have been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.
