President's Day was fun for my 1st graders. We learned a lot about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. After they listen and read stories about them, watch videos and power points, and listen to me talk about my favorite President they choose 3 facts about each President they have learned. Below is a picture of the first part of the project they create for displaying their new found learning. I used cut pieces of black yarn for the beard. They had a blast gluing that on and it actually wasn't very messy. Some kids used a lot of yarn and some didn't. Everything you see was traced by the students except the eyes. I bought googly eyes at Wal-Mart. After the students write their 3 facts on 3 different cards, they will attach them to Lincoln's hat. A picture of the George Washington example is on my Pinterest page. It wasn't my idea so I didn't want to put it on my blog.
