February marks the perfect time to have students complete research papers on the presidents of the United States. This year put a new twist on those reports. Instead of using encyclopedias and other reference books, why not go on a virtual field trip to the White House?
The White House site, http://www.whitehouse.gov is perfect for students. Select the White House History and Tours, after which you may view the White House or access information on the presidents of the United States. Presidents are listed in chronological order based on their terms of office. A portrait, biographical sketch, and links to First Ladies are also available.
There are illustrations of our presidents available through the FCIT resources, Famous People, search presidents.
