Presidents and Vice Presidents

Yesterday's elections provide a great opportunity to introduce the concept of presidents and vice presidents as well as congressional representatives and senators.

Take good color photos from online sources or newspaper clippings to make your own three card sets. The first set of cards can have the picture and a label, the second set of cards will have only pictures, and the third set of cards will have only labels. Your child can mix and match these cards, reading or just looking at the pictures and comparing the labels (children who cannot yet read enjoy being able to compare and contrast the labels visually to finish matching the sets).

A great DIY project!

Older children can look up facts about presidents, write out short biographies, and much more.
