Presidential $1 Coin Lesson Plans (Theodore Roosevelt)


Students will learn about conservation and the accomplishments of Theodore Roosevelt through his Presidential $1 Coin.


Have the students research Theodore Roosevelt to learn about his accomplishments while in office. Start with the October Coin of the Month to learn more about the 26th president.

Have the students research Roosevelt's major accomplishments during his presidency. Discuss the students' findings and record them on chart paper or a white board.

Using information from class discussions and classroom resources, have the students research Roosevelt's conservation efforts, his "square deal," why he traveled to Panama and famous quotes. Invite the students to record their findings in a graphic organizer and write summary statements of their findings.

As an extension, have the students celebrate Teddy Roosevelt's October birthday by sharing their research findings through a presentation of their choice.
