Lesson Plan, Other


This Teacher Resource Guide from the National Portrait Gallery will introduce students to the Presidents and the role of the presidency in American history through the portraits. The activities, games, and puzzles are designed to enhance students' knowledge of American Presidents. Some activities are designed to be completed either as a whole class activity, a small group activity, or an individual project. Each activity includes objectives, procedures, related standards in historical thinking, the level of difficulty (elementary, middle, and upper), worksheets, and other supplemental materials. A list of suggested sources for expanded research is also included, as well as reproductions of presidential portraits from Washington to Clinton.
