The American Presidents: Life Portraits Exhibit Activity allows for
individual and/or group involvement when visiting the traveling exhibit.
Through this activity, teachers and parents can provide
students with a variety of ways to learn about the presidents by
analyzing portraits, images and biographical information.
Students will use the activity
to make comparisons,
draw conclusions and relate the presidents' lives to their own.
Each Calling Card has two types of questions:
1. The Meet the President! Questions -
challenge students to search the
biographical sketches to locate the answer.
2. The Look Closer! Questions - challenge students to examine the visual
images such as C-SPAN's oil
portraits and images provided by the White House
