Several weeks before Presidents competition, have the players develop notes on individual presidents and write practice questions. The number of presidents assigned to each player depends on the number of presidents in the range to be covered and the number of players. For example, if competition covers presidents 25-43 and you have 10 players, then each player can be assigned two presidents. Each player will learn more about the presidents he or she is assigned than if you simply gave the players prepared notes on all the presidents. Depending on the age level of the players, you may want to give them a sample set of notes and practice questions on one president that they can follow as a model.
