Brain POP Jr. Honors Presidents' Day

If you are continuing to teach about Presidents' Day, the site BrainPopJr. has a free video with related activities for both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.  The videos are geared more for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades.  Typically you have to have a membership to use this site {it can be costly}, but every now and then free videos and activities are offered.  I read several books about Washington and Lincoln to my firsties and then we watched the short videos and completed a few of the activities.  Enjoy!


  1. Thanks for the reminder about this great site! I had a free trial (and LOVED it!), but haven't used it much since then. Today when we went to the computer lab I had my kiddos watch the Abe Lincoln and Geo. Wash. videos and then do the quizzes. :)

  2. Cool, I'm glad you could use it. I wish that I had a membership, but it's a bit costly. I hope my district will purchase it for us next year.

  3. This is an awesome site!!
