Activity Overview


In this activity, students will make a list of the pros and cons of being the president of the United States. So You Want to Be President? describes many reasons why it would be a good idea to be president and many reasons why it wouldn’t. Students can compile a list of pros and cons from textual evidence alone, by researching on the internet, or in other books. Using the T-Chart, students will list and illustrate the pros in one column and the cons in the other.

Here is an example:

PROS

  • lives in the White House
  • has a pool, bowling alley, and movie theater
  • doesn’t have to eat yucky vegetables

CONS

  • always has to be dressed up
  • can’t go anywhere alone
  • people get mad at you
