True to its reputation as America’s Largest Classroom, PBS has many resources to engage young and young adult students in our country’s past, present and future presidents. Presidents Day | All About the Holidays, accompanied by support materials for grades 1-5, shows how the holiday evolved from a birthday party for George Washington to an observance for all of the Presidents.
Letters to the Next President 2.0 connects 13-18 year olds as they research, write and voice their opinions on issues that matter to them in the coming election. Teachers and mentors can also facilitate civic participation for a new generation by signing up to receive resources and opportunities in KQED’s (Public Media for Northern California) monthly bulletin. Sign up. And you’ll find the PBS LearningMedia Presidents Day video here.
