Do you study the U.S. Presidents at home or in the classroom? Whether or not you’ve planned Presidents’ Day activities, there are many that can be put together easily. Others could be started Presidents’ Day week, using Presidents’ Day as a springboard for discussion.
Some natural themes for Presidents’ Day are money, individual presidents (such as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln), naming and sequencing presidents, timelines of Presidents, and elections.
