“An American President”
Due: Friday, February 26th
Please research and write a one or two page essay about your chosen president in your best cursive writing. (If you have not learned cursive, you may use manuscript.) Please write on one side of each page. Include a catchy introduction, a body of details explaining his life, and a closing paragraph describing your president’s contribution to America. Include important details, but more importantly, write about the life of the man. For example, include a funny story, important events in his family life, or interesting facts about your president. What was his favorite food, color, song, or sport? This draws much more interest than simply listing facts. You may include your opinion throughout your writing. We look forward to hearing all about your president! Have fun, kids!
