Learning about George and Abe

It was no surprise when most of the children had two favorite presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. They see them almost every day on a penny, quarter, dollar bill or a silly commercial selling cars or furniture. Their familiar faces made learning fun facts about each president and listening to books about them a very interesting time for the children. Did you know Abraham Lincoln carried his important papers in his hat and George Washington returned a lost dog to a British general during the Revolutionary War? We also visited the history of the presidents site and the children had the chance to see what each president looked like...not a good reaction for most...except, of course, for George and Abe!

I am cracking up. Wish I could have been a fly on the wall when you showed them the president's pictures!

I love the beards kids made for Abe. Very cute! Andrew was so excited he has the same birthday as Abe and enjoyed learning the two great presidents' stories so much!
