This is Day 2 of a two day lesson on U.S. Presidents.  On the first day, scholars completed a web quest on U.S. Presidents.  (Click here to access lesson on U.S. Presidents web quest.)  For this lesson, I separate scholars into two teams for the purpose of student accountability to one another.  Next, scholars use the information they researched in a U.S. President Web Quest to play a Jeopardy-inspired game. Learning facts and trivia about U.S. Presidents' leadership, careers, heritage, stature, appearance, etc. helps to make them seem more human to students.  If students see these great leaders of our nation as real people, they just might be inspired to great things, as well.  I want them to view our U.S. Presidents as ordinary people who did extraordinary things.  The game serves as a research assessment for students.
