Presidents' Day U.S. coin activity. You can also use this to spice up your elementary United States history or government lessons. Your students will create an 8 page picture book, fill in the blanks, color and glue in the pictures, all while learning about the history of U.S. coins. Find out when coin production started, which coin was introduced much later than the others, when the presidents first appeared on the coins, and which coin was even smaller than the dime!

This also includes a short fact sheet about the 5 presidents on the 5 common U.S. coins. Pages are provided in both color and black and white.
