Activity Overview


Use information gained from illustrations (e.g., maps, photographs) and the words in a text to demonstrate understanding of the text (e.g., where, when, why, and how key events occur).

To keep readers engaged, St. George, added in many unique facts about different presidents. In this activity, students will find interesting characteristics/facts about the presidents and illustrate them using a traditional storyboard. They will also provide textual evidence of the characteristic or fact.


Here is an example:

Many presidents had pets:

  • Dogs - F.D. Roosevelt, Hoover, Bush
  • Horse - Grant
  • Goat - Harrison
  • Raccoon - Coolidge

"Theodore Roosevelt's children didn't just have pets, they ran a zoo. They had dogs, cats, guinea pigs, snakes, mice, rats, badgers, raccoons, parrots, and a Shetland pony called Algonquin."
