Instead, I decided to laminate them and do a little first grade research writing. So I made up this worksheet and they filled in the information on two Presidents.
Here is what the finished products looked like. I displayed them in Presidental order on the hall wall for all the older students to see. I was amazed at how many great reactions I got.
I still have 6 more to add to the wall- once I can convince a few more kiddos to do an extra one for me. I actually had 3 students who wanted to do an extra today :-)
I noticed most of the students wrote the names in capitals... due to the cards having the names wrote all in capitals. UGH!!! Oh well, great teaching moment! They are still super awesome.
