Presidents ~ Lapbook and Notebook Resources

 Suggestion for President Notebook: 
Buy a three ring binder and cardstock paper.  Hole punch the cardstock (3 holes per page).  Use one piece of cardstock for each president.  Use the layer book for each president and then choose some of the general minit books to complete your page.  You could also cut out pictures of historical events related to the president and paste on the page. 



For George Washington’s page – complete the layer book and first lady book.   You could fill the rest of the page with pictures of Mount Vernon, a dollar bill, and Washington state. 

On the back of each page, you could have your child complete copywork pertaining to the president (famous quotes, pieces of famous speeches, quotes about that president, etc.).  Instead of copywork, a student could draw a presidential portrait.   You can even mix the two ideas (or add your own) to add variety to your notebook.

Note:  Some of the general minit books are similar in nature in order to provide you with more options as you notebook your way through the presidents.
