Description

Our America’s Founding Fathers lesson plan delves into the Founding Fathers’ contributions to the development of the national government and their influence as models of civic virtue. This lesson focuses on seven statesmen responsible for American independence, as well as a few others, and their unique contributions to the effort. During this lesson, students are asked to work creatively and with a partner to create an informational poster about a specific founding father, including both personal and professional facts related to the person and their life; they then present the posted to the class, strengthening their public speaking skills. Students are also asked to answer questions about what they read in the lesson material to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain the contributions of the Founding Fathers to the development of the national government; evaluate the contributions of the Founding Fathers as models of civic virtue.
