Shutter Fold for Famous Americans

foldable fam amShown here is a shutter foldable used for review on Famous Americans. Students are given oversized paper with the names already printed on the outside and a picture of the famous person on the inside. Students were asked to draw pictures to show what they know about each person on the outside. On the inside, they sorted phrase cards that contained riddle-like clues.

Activity can be modified to met your students needs. This was done with a group of second graders and worked out very well. Parents were appreciative too, because they could use the information within the foldable for review.

Shown to the right is another example.
