Presidents' Day is right around the corner and many students will still be in class due to snow make-up days or other reasons. Why not use this day to honor our great leaders?
With such great attention given to test preparation during this month, most presidential studies have been pushed to the wayside and it is time to start providing these educational opportunities again if we want our students to become responsible citizens.
My students have been working on projects this week from my "United States President Enrichment Projects" resource. This resource includes No-Prep engaging and thought provoking projects that require the students to complete tasks such as researching the presidents' occupations or determining how a president from the 19th century might feel about a president from the 21st century. Students can complete one to three or more of the projects. These projects can be purchased HERE in my TPT store!
