Presidents: Understanding America's Presidents through Research-Related Activities. A Good Apple Activity Book for Grades 4-8. Revised Edition.
This activity book is designed for grades 4-8 but could be modified for other levels. Mini-units begin with a brief biographical sketch of a U.S. president, including highlights of his life and administration. Twelve trivia questions accompany each sketch and require additional reading from other sources. Thought questions are based on an analysis of all that has been read about the president's administration and can lead to discussion. Additional activities and a Presidential Trivia game culminates the study. Writing and creative thinking experiences in the section, "A Changing Chapter," involve students in speculation on how the course of history might have been altered had certain events turned out differently. A complete answer key is included. (EH)
