Presidents Day Reading, Activities, and Coloring

Updated: Apr 3

Our Presidents Day activities are growing. Last year was an election year, and we had a lot of opportunities to learn about the democratic process. This year's activities will explore the responsibilities of being a president and the character traits of some former presidents. I picked up a placemat and poster to help put faces to names and even got a presidential Madlibs game to keep it fun.
