Around here, President’s Day means a long week (aka Winter Break), no mail service, and very bored children. But it’s also happens to be an important day in our country’s history and a fantastic learning opportunity, no school books required.
With Google’s Showcase for U.S. Presidents, you can learn all about each of the US presidents, including their birth places, and the progression of how the states voted for them during their elections. Just make sure you’ve downloaded Google Earth and then you can let your kids get a 3D history lesson. Which is so much cooler than allowing them to think our Founding Fathers are the guys who hawk mattresses and used cars on TV -Kristen
Check out Showcase for U.S. Presidents with Google Earth plugin, which is free to download.
