Presidents Day Fun

I put this together yesterday using a free download here. It has 20 fun task cards to use before Presidents Day (or any time you are studying the presidents). Each card includes an interesting presidential fact along with a higher-level thinking task.

An example: "Benjamin Harrison was the first president to have electric lights installed in the White House. In what ways would your life be different if there was no electricity?" This wasn't a bit difficult for my Ethiopian son to imagine. He quickly responded, "If I come here and you didn't have electricity, I wouldn't even know!"

There are also printable president booklets, cloze and vocabulary activities for Presidents Day at I utilize that site weekly. It's got great, quick, printable activities that are perfect for ELL students. Well, for mine anyway. :)
