Happy Presidents' Day! Today, we remember George Washington (our first President who lead through the Revolution), and Abraham Lincoln (our 16th President who led through the Civil War). We celebrate birthdays of both of these brave and honest leaders on the third Monday of February.
Today, we also honor all of our leaders who served as American Presidents. We discussed how many presidents our country had so far (besides our current President), and we read this Presidents' Day book. Children like "Rookie Read-About Holidays" series since all books are beautifully illustrated with just enough information for a three-year-old while bringing up facts interesting even to a seven-year-old.
After having discussed the American history and what the Presidents' Day holiday represents, we explored the U.S. landmarks and monuments and talked about their significance and what does each represent.
We are using these miniature replicas for which I made 3-Part-Cards for matching. The set includes The Lincoln Memorial, the Hoover Dam, the Liberty Bell, the Alamo, Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, the Gateway Arch, the U.S. Capitol, the Empire State Building, the White House, the American flag, and of course, the majestic Bald Eagle. Each monument, landmark, and symbol beautifully represents our country!
This aerial photo captures the expanse of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. This image shows the Lincoln Memorial (foreground), the Reflecting Pool, the Washington Monument, and, in the distance, the Capitol Building.
