“Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.” Noah Webster 1788
In public schools, second grade students write reports about a United States President. Instead, educate your students about all 44 American Presidents while learning about real American history. Give your students the assignment to make a book or notebook containing mini reports about each representative of the Executive Branch since the founding of our country. We purchased a set of fact cards about all the American Presidents. Each card had a copy of the President’s picture from the White House and some trivial facts listed on the back side. Utilize your library and credible internet resources for more information. Have your students write 3-5 sentences about each leader. You and your learners will grow in knowledge about American history while researching each Presidential administration.
