*Ask children to think about what they would do if they were President.  Have them draw pictures and write stories that you can make into a class book.

*Look at the Presidents on various coins and bills.  Take play money and let children cut out a photo of their own face and put it on the play money.  Run off several copies on green paper for them to share with friends.
*Visit whitehouse.gov to learn lots of fascinating facts about the Presidents.
