Theodore Roosevelt had such a rich, and adventurous life. He is a lot of fun to study and learn about and makes for a great unit study.
Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt is my son’s favorite presidents to study. When he was in 5th grade he had to pick his favorite president to read and research about and Teddy was his top pick! What a curious man. We loved reading about this taxidermy collection as a child and his love for nature. He loved nature so much that he actually created 5 National parks.
