Instructional Ideas

  • Invite small groups to choose and investigate one president then present information they learned to their peers 
  • Flip your classroom; direct learners to search the site at home to prepare themselves for a discussion or activity when they return to school 
  • If it is currently an election season, point out presidents' inauguration on the timeline and watch the presidential inauguration in your classroom
Classroom Considerations

  • Each pupil, or small group, needs a computer or mobile learning device to take part in the interactive timeline
Pros

  • Timeline shares a president's early life, presidency, and post-presidency
  • Easily found tabs make for quick navigation through webpages

  • Features only 13 of the 44 United States presidents
