I’ve updated the Presidential Facts Notebooking Pages to include the 45th President, Donald Trump. Get your free download here.
It’s inaugural week. That means on Friday the 20th of January at high noon eastern time, a new President of the United States of America will be inaugurated as the Commander in Chief of the United States of America.
Following a hotly contested U.S. Election, Donald Trump received won the election which will make him the 45th President of the United States.
A few years ago my son was studying American History using America the Beautiful from Notgrass Publishing. I love how they weave literature study into each era of American History. It’s a unit study and incorporates Bible, Literature, vocabulary, creative writing, mapping and timelining.
I wanted to enhance the study a bit by letting Jonathan study a bit about each President as we progress through history and let him explore a little about them as we go. He learned to name them as a list and their order several years ago, but I don’t just want him to be able to say them. I want him to have an understanding about their lives and what their presidency was like.
So I came up with these Just the Presidential Facts Notebooking pages. As he reads about each one, he can jot down some facts and information that he finds to be interesting.
This year he is doing Uncle Sam and You, also by Notgrass Publishing, a study of American Civics. These pages are appropriate for use with civics as well.
The reality is since it’s an inaugural week, it’s a great time to explore the Presidents a bit. Whether you just want to get more familiar with the incumbant President or review all of them, these pages will help you do just that.
