Graphic Organizing: Early American History

This Graphic Organizing: Early American History lesson plan also includes:

In collaborative groups, young US historians sort cards (each labeled with a single early American event or issue) according to which of the first four presidents was leading the country at the time. Learners copy the events onto a graphic organizer to support comprehension and retention. I've seen this activity used to distinguish between Federalists and Democratic-Republicans; it would work well anywhere opposing points of view are involved.
