Here are some great printable activities that would be great as a President’s Day project. It is 6 pages long so make sure to scroll to see them all.
This book includes simple yet interesting facts about each president that every child should read about during their lives. It is important to know who our past and present leaders are. My 8 year old is on the younger end for this book yet she still loves me reading it to her. It was basically all new information to her and I am sure we will reference this book throughout the years for events such as President’s Day, 4th of July and before any trips to Washington D.C. we may plan. A great book for any middle grade reader’s bookshelf.
