In this lesson, students will research the presidents. This is meant to be a differentiated activity aimed at middle school students. Students complete three assignments from the grid. For the traditional activity completion, the three assignments must form a tic-tac-toe on the grid. The nine assignment choices align to historical reading and writing Common Core State Standards.
To differentiate the activity, assignments can be modified by the teacher. For example, teachers may shorten an assignment, require only two assignments, or allow students to choose any three from the grid. Also, teachers may allow students to complete additional assignments for extra credit.
