Activity Overview


Many people made notable contributions in establishing the United States and its government. Among these luminaries are the founding fathers. Remembering these men and their significant contributions is simple with a storyboard. Students can create and chart relevant information about any historical figures in a way that is fun and engaging. They may choose to highlight each individual in their own cell, or create a narrative that describes how they worked toward the compromises of the Constitution.

Students can choose to use the following Founding Fathers:

  • George Washington
  • James Madison
  • Benjamin Franklin
  • Alexander Hamilton
  • John Adams
  • Samuel Adams
  • Thomas Jefferson
