From the School House to the White House

Students recall visits to museums, then read a news article about a museum exhibit that shows what U.S. presidents were like during their childhood. In this U.S. history and current events lesson, the teacher introduces the article with a discussion and vocabulary activity, then students read the news piece and participate in a think-pair-share discussion. Lesson includes interdisciplinary follow-up activities.

I just started using Lesson Planet but so far I like that I can find worksheets to go with lessons I already have planned.
