Presidents' Day is a great opportunity to build your students' knowledge of American history and spark interest in social studies and civics.
This national holiday was originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington's birthday. We now celebrate it on the third Monday of every February to honor all U.S. Presidents — from the past to the present — who have held the nation's highest office.
This year, Presidents' Day lands on February 19. Celebrate with this selection of 20+ fiction and nonfiction titles to incorporate in your lesson plan.
Packed with historic facts, trivia questions, and plenty of information about our presidents, these titles are a great way to bring U.S. history alive in your classroom — and may even inspire your students to run for office one day!
