Though we often refer to it as President's day, the third Monday in February is technically still called Washington's Birthday. Teach your students about the history of this holiday through this fun, interactive presentation!
This interactive e-book is a Smart Notebook file that talks about the history of President's Day in the United States. It details the history of the holiday from the time Washington was president, when it was unofficially celebrated on February 22. Teach your students how President Rutherford B. Hayes made Washington's Birthday an official celebration and how the holiday was eventually moved to the third Monday in February.
The information is sure to teach all of your students, young and old, something new, and the interactive components (motion and sound) are sure to keep their attention!
