Freebee Friday: Founding Father
George Washington’s birthday is almost upon us and it should mean more than a day off from school. It’s a good time to look back on our first president with a free teaching kit that’s all about George Washington. It can easily be integrated into a social studies class and includes classroom activities, worksheets, suggested readings and a detailed chronology of the founding father’s life. Sponsored by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, the kit is downloadable with has nine lessons to choose from.
