During the month of February we pay tribute to past and present Presidents of the United States. In first grade the children draw a name of a president out of a hat. They then must research that president and find out at least 5 facts about that president.
Those facts are then memorized or written on a note card. The child dresses a teddy bear like their president would have dressed during his life. On Thursday, February 12th they brought their bear dressed as their president and note cards to school and presented an oral report to the class.
