Reflection: Adjustments to Practice 3rd Monday in February: Presidents Day - Section 3: Closure


This lesson was ambitious for the amount of time I had, probably because I didn't expect the kids to be as interested in the finer details as they were.  We had a great amount of rich discussion, which is effective and important, and not something to rush.  I will teach this lesson in the future, but with more informational text.  It would be great to have students read one-page biographies of the presidents we're talking about.
