George freebie

Hey there!

A quick post to share a freebie with you that I mentioned on Friday.

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday

Since we are working on the American Revolution, we read this book:

George vs. George: The American Revolution As Seen from Both Sides
This book is full of facts about both Georges.  The kids actually really like it.  I do NOT read it all in one sitting because that would be TOO much but I read bits and pieces to give them information about them.  

They filled out a compare/contrast H (I feel like 4th graders have graduated from the Venn and that middle section of the Venn is so awkward).  

Then, I had them choose either George Washington or King George III out of a cup.  They did not tell anyone who they had.  

I made this All About Me (George) poster for them to fill out.  They needed to fill it out in a way that the other students would know which George it was by the information on the sheet.  

I am attaching both sheets here for you, PLUS completely plain ones in case you want to use these for President's day, but don't want to compare/contrast George Washington.

I also attached a blank All About Me poster that can be used for any historical figure.  Just click the H-diagram above for the freebie.

I hope you find this helpful!  I love comparing with the H!!  :O)

Let me know what you think!


  1. Aw! I love it! I'll be using Abe vs. George next week! :) And maybe I'll have to do a George vs. George as a review, even though we finished American Revolution because it's so great! :)

  3. Maybe it's because I'm in sixth grade, but I've never seen the compare/contrast H before. I like it SO much better! Thanks for sharing!

    What a cute and clever idea. I bet your students really enjoyed it. I get the whole venn thing...LOL
