Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington.
Washington and Lincoln are the two most recognized leaders, but Presidents’ Day is now popularly seen as a day to recognize the lives and achievements of all of America’s chief executives.
We spent this day teaching students about the accomplishments of the presidents, with a focus on the lives of Washington and Lincoln.
Ask your child about Washington’s and Lincoln’s nicknames, original styles and achievements.
We painted an Eagle face as a US Nation Emblem and had fun making President’s masks.
