This Presidents Day Set has a little bit of everything to help second graders learn about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln! Plus it practices literacy and math skills with a presidential theme!

This set contains 2 fact mini books.

One mini book on George Washington.
One mini book on Abraham Lincoln.

The mini books are one page and can be folded into an 8 page booklet. (Directions for folding are included.)

The set includes a mapping activity, a Venn Diagram comparing the 2 different presidents, and several recommendations for informational books on these 2 presidents. It also includes an opinion writing activity, a game to practice reading multisyllabic words, a writing activity, a graphing activity, and a game to practice common and proper nouns.
