Teaching the children about Jimmy Carter can be a little tedious … until now. This activity combines note taking with building a Habitat for Humanity-like house. So gather your resources to share with the children. You might want to use biographies, big books, DVDs, websites or a combination of several. Regardless of the resources you use to expose your children to facts abut Jimmy Carter, once they have written down 15 facts about Jimmy Carter, they will begin to recopy those facts on timber for their house (aka: popsicle sticks). When finished with their 15 pieces of wooden siding, they glue them onto folded construction paper and the walls of the house are born. Then the children create a shingled roof and voila … A house fit for a president!
