United States Presidents – Elementary Lesson Plans

Since the inauguration is today, we thought we’d share some of the lesson plans that focus on presidents.

Prior to the lesson, ask students to talk about the U. S. Presidents with their parents. In class, ask students to name the presidents of the United States that they know. Make a list of the names on the board. Ask students why presidents are important to the history of our nation. Show the students the president cards* and fast facts* and ask them to review information about the presidents.

*download the lesson plan to access the president cards and fast facts.


Here’s a sneak peek of a few of the activities located in The U.S. Presidents Lesson Plan




–Updated Presidential lesson plans will be coming in the future.
