Planning a President’s Day unit study? Or maybe you don’t need a full-fledged unit study, you just want to take a little peek into this holiday. There are so many great resources online, if you do a little bit of digging.
But hey, I’ve done some digging for you. =)
There are more resources here than what you could use in one day. What we have here are options. I like OPTIONS. (It’s like a staple for me.) Lucky for you, President’s Day comes around every year, so you can come back and do something different next year. =)

President’s Day Books
There are A. LOT. OF. BOOKS. about the U.S. presidents in genearl, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, many other specific presidents such as John F. Kennedy or John Adams, and President’s Day as a holiday. A quick search on Amazon or at your local library and you’ll have your arms full.
However, there is one book that I’d like to point out that can take your unit study deeper if you have older kids. “The Everything American Government Book: From the Constitution to Present-Day Elections, All You Need to Understand Our Democratic System“ is a fairly thorough book about the U.S. government, the role of the president, elections, and so much more. In any case, it would be a good resource to have on hand, especially with the presidential election looming.
Is there anything you would add?
