Activity Overview


Students will research presidents from a specific period of time and map out when each president held office. You can give students time frames of 20, 50, or even 100 years. Students can use the index in the back of So You Want to Be President?, to find out when each president held office and an interesting fact about them.

The example below shows the presidents from a 20 year time frame, 1900-1920. Written in the description box is the information found in the index, but you could have students use the internet to research each specific president and find out facts about their time in office.

Here is an example:

William McKinley

  • President from 1897-1901
  • Born in Niles, Ohio, 1843
  • Died 1901 - William McKinley was assassinated after the United States acquired overseas territory by winning the Spanish-American War.
