Founding Fathers Scavenger Hunt & Social Media Page

posted in: Research Paper | 0

What do you know about our Founding Fathers? Meeting for the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia back in 1787, a group of strong-willed men representing states with very different interests secretly created a document that has been used by our government for over 200 years! That same document was both strong enough to provide a set of rules on how a growing nation would govern itself yet was flexible enough to be changed with the times.

In this assignment, you will:

  1. Research one of the Founding Fathers and complete the Scavenger Hunt listed below.
  1. You will create a social media page for your Founder.

Research and references are required for this assignment. Provided are a few websites for you to use. Feel free to find other creditable resources either on the web or in books. (Yes, we still encourage the use of books)! DO NOT use Wikipedia. This website is not accurate or scholarly.
