This year President’s Day is on Monday, February 18. It is celebrated every year on the third Monday in February. Although it is a day set apart to honor all past presidents, it was started to celebrate George Washington. As a matter of fact, it is still called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government. If your children often ask you why a particular federal holiday is celebrated, you can use curriculum in your homeschool to teach them the facts. Classical Historian has a great guide called America’s Federal Holidays and Silverdale Press publishes a unit study called White House Holidays Unit Studies.
There are some super interesting facts about the United States presidents that will get you and your children chuckling. Learning about the presidents, even the ones that we do not support or like can be fun. Did you know that one of our president’s false teeth were made from hippopotamus ivory? Weird, huh?
