Every year, we observe Presidents’ Day on the third Monday of February. Celebrate this holiday in person or in a remote teaching setting by creating a fun bulletin board or virtual backdrop that teaches students about the U.S. presidents throughout history. From projects that allow your students to imagine themselves as presidents to activities that let them explore historical events, we’ve compiled a range of Presidents’ Day bulletin boards. Who knows? These activities may inspire one of your students to run for office one day!
Even if you don’t have a bulletin board available to decorate (or the time to do it!), these ideas can serve as inspiration for games, activities, and lessons that get your students learning about American presidents.
Presidents’ Day Bulletin Board Ideas
If I Were President...
This bulletin board has students ponder what actions they would take if they were president. Create one—real or virtual—for your students to fill in. What would they strive to accomplish? How would they boost the economy, elevate education, improve healthcare, or repair injustices? Then, decorate the board with their photos dressed up to represent Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, or another president.
