Happy Birthday, Washington!

Happy President's Day!  

There I am hanging out with some presidential friends.

Hopefully you aren't working today.  Yes?  Maybe you're having a birthday party for Mr. Washington today?  Just another reason to have cake, and maybe some Taft-y.  Perhaps give yourself students a little President's Day Quiz when you return.

I'm not going to beat around the Bush.  There are a lot of Cool(idge) resources available for teachers out on the internet.  Don't Polk fun at it, this is pretty serious business.

If you need to Fillmore time in class, and are feeling extra patriotic, the History Channel has some great presidential resources, plus videos and articles.  We shouldn't take these resources for Grant-ed.  They are very cool! 

The Presidential Libraries are also pretty great and provide lots of educational information.  The National Archives even provides historical digital documents and other great teacher resources, so it's worth a glance!  If you think you can't afFord it, don't worry-  these online resources are totally free!

Do your students know the presidents?  Here's a word search to help sneak some president names into their knowledge base.  

I came up with all of these puns Obama self, but I can't think of any more (and let's be real, they aren't great) so I guess it's time to move on with my day.
