It was our intention to have information on Quizlets a wonderful site that helps you form “flashcards” for your learners which can be used both for teaching and review. There are a number of games on the site that give variety to studying. However, the time to develop a quality newsletter about the site passed too quickly and so, we will cover it in a later edition.
Since I have been unable to meet that assignment, I spent time looking for interesting resources for Presidents’ Day for all grade levels. I was thinking that having M.L. King Jr Day as background, the exploration of the social justice aspects of Lincoln’s & Washington’s presidencies would be a great continuation. However, there was little I could find that compared the three men so I decided to go with information on each of the presidents separately, and in comparison where I could.

Contributions of People who Defended American Principles
Lincoln & Washington, 2nd grade lesson plan

We hope you find resources among these sites to help you plan lessons for February.
