Presidents' Day is February 18th
Fun Facts & Lesson Plans

Mt. Rushmore

On this Presidents' Day, celebrate it by finding fun and random facts to share with your students. For example, did you know Abraham Lincoln is the only U.S. President who was also a licensed bartender? Did you know "teddy bears" were so named when Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a small bear cub? Did you know John Quincy Adams would often skinny dip in the Potomac River? NEA also has lesson plans to assist educators in grades K-12.
