Learning about Presidents' Day with lapbooking!
Presidents' Day is the third Monday in February. The holiday was originally in honor of George Washington, but over time it also came to include Abraham Lincoln (also born in February) and eventually all United States presidents. Officially, the holiday is still known as Washington's Birthday. It seems that President's Day and Presidents' Day are both accepted spellings of the holiday.
We decided to complete a lapbook to learn about Presidents' Day. Fortunately, everything we needed to complete our lapbook was available at Homeschoolshare.
We also watched a video at www.unitedstreaming.com (a membership site).
Here are pictures of our completed lapbook. There are many other items that could be added but we kept it simple in order to complete it in one day. Click on each photo to see a larger version.
