President’s Day


 

President’s Day is Monday, February 21.  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. Watch videos about Roosevelt and Truman and then write an essay on how these two presidential terms still affect our country today.
  • 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 this quote.
  • President Jimmy Carter – Habitat for Humanity. Discuss whether you believe he made more of an impact during his presidency or after his presidency.

And remember – fun learning is forever learning!
