Did you know that teddy bears, one of the most beloved children’s toys of all time, were inspired by President Theodore Roosevelt? This packet includes a one- page reading passage about the history of teddy bears, comprehension questions, and a writing and craft activity. This is a great way to combine Presidents’ Day and Valentines’ Day learning into one fun lesson!
Teacher tip: after students learn about the history of teddy bears, throw a Teddy Bear Party to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
