President’s Day is Monday, February 17.  Usually we associate President’s Day with President Washington and President Lincoln.  Why not teach about a more current President this year?  Some possible ideas include–

  • Presidents Roosevelt and Truman–World War II.
  • President Kennedy– Jackie Kennedy remarked that “There’ll be great presidents again…but there’ll never be another Camelot.”  Watch the Camelot video and discuss the quote.
  • President Jimmy Carter–Habitat for Humanity. Discuss whether you believe he made more of an impact during his presidency or after his presidency.
  • Our current President–President Obama.

And remember, fun learning is forever learning!
