History Reinvented Kinder Style!
Okay so I changed it out a little to simplify the story. My kids loved hearing about this president and what happened during his lifetime. They made immediate connections to Lincoln and even Barack Obama. Why do they find this information so fascinating? Students love non fiction but it's not always easy to find appropriate text at this level. I thought you might enjoy seeing their version of his portrait. I can never get enough of this.
I read them an actual book on George Washington (yup it wasn't coloring book style) but they told me they liked mine a lot better. They know how to flatter their teacher! We also made 3 cornered hats with our fifth grade mentors.
