Two other U.S. Presidents were born in the month of February as well. William Harrison
(9th President of the USA) was born on February 9, 1773 and
Ronald Reagan )40th
President of the USA) was born on February 6, 1911.

Here are some fun ways to weave learning about U.S. presidents into your
homeschool days this week - or whenever your kids express an interest in finding out
more about the presidents.

LANGUAGE ARTS

POTUS (Presidents Of The United States) - is a feature of the Internet Public Library that
provides information on U. S. Presidents. Read biographies and historical documents
online, listen to audio files and watch video clips, get detailed information about
election results, cabinet members, notable events, and enjoy some trivia. There is
material here that is appropriate for a variety of age/grade ranges from about mid-
elementary through high school and beyond. As always, parents should preview the
material to determine suitability of content.

Presidential Word Fun - At the top of a blank, lined piece of paper, write the word,
"President." Challenge your kids to make as many words out of that word as they can.
(For example: resident, side, dent, net, sent, etc.) You can do the same with the
names, "George Washington" and "Abraham Lincoln."
