President's Day Lesson Ideas

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

President's Day is a day to reflect on the amazing history of the U.S. Presidents. Homeschoolers of all ages enjoy learning about these famous figures, and you will also find the facts and information fascinating. My son and I recently completed a biography of Abraham Lincoln and I think I learned as much as he did! The content available today is vast and interesting, and it is not just for history buffs. Below you will find ten resources that I recommend for learning about the U.S. Presidents. All websites, books, etc. can be tailored to all of your homeschoolers as needed.

1. Visit "American Presidents" online, a C-Span website. This amazing website offers an American Presidents Portrait Exhibit, lesson plans and resources for each president, gravesite information, career information on how to become a president and much more! Each president has a fact page, and there is also audio available for listening to many of the resource programs.

2. Learn more about the White House at the government website, "Whitehouse.gov". With everything from unique facts to the room layout of this amazing abode, this is a site for anyone who cannot visit the White House firsthand. Be sure to explore "White House 101" to learn about past and current White House pets, too.

3. Check out the "Who Was..." series of books with your elementary aged homeschooler. "Who Was Abraham Lincoln?" and "Who Was George Washington?" are both excellent biographies. These books are well written and garnish the interest of all age readers.

4. Complete a puzzle with your homeschooler, while reinforcing presidential knowledge. Melissa and Doug makes a fantastic puzzle for younger elementary students, along with White Mountain Puzzles.

5. Try trivia to learn about our presidential past and present! There is a fantastic "American Presidents DVD Trivia Game" that is not only challenging for the whole family, but it is also alot of fun.

6. Play and learn through interactive resources! Interactive U.S. Presidents by Scientific Toys offers an auditory component to learning that children will love. There is also a neat Mindware Brain Box on U.S. Presidents that has a memory style game component which is challenging and fun.

7. Challenge your homeschooler with presidential flash cards. Flash cards act as a visual reminder to your child, and they also provide a great review tool for teaching. Brighter Child and Hi-Q offer comprehensive sets.

8. Watch a dvd with your older homeschoolers. The History Channel Presents The Presidents is an excellent compilation of information and historical facts.

9. Try the free craft idea at Enchanted Learning and make a Tree of Presidents. This is an amazingly creative idea that brings art and history together.

10. Lapbooks are a wonderful way for your homeschooler to learn about the U.S. Presidents and create a keepsake book in the process. Homeschool Share offers a super lapbook template, with factual printables and additional ideas. Best of all, it is free!
