This printable activity helps kids learn facts about U.S. presidents.

What you need:
• printable match cards (see links below)

What to do:
1. Print the match cards:

And the number cards:

2. Cut out the cards. If you'd like, you can glue them to card stock to make them sturdier.

3. Once the cards are ready, turn them all over on a flat surface, text down.

4. Challenge your child to match all the presidents' names with their numbers — for instance, George Washington=#1.

5. Use the watch to track how long it takes to match all 43 pairs. This list will help you check the matches.

6. Now, shuffle the decks and try again. See if your child can match faster this time. Up the ante by rewarding him with coins each time he betters his time.

Learning benefits:
• memorization
• history facts
• math/sequencing
