I like the idea of students drawing their own silhouettes for a Presidents' Day bulletin board display. Having silhouettes of Presidents Washington and Lincoln with the title "Our Past Leaders and Our Future Leaders" is an inspiring title for a display of your students' silhouettes.
This is a fun creative writing idea for President's Day. Have your students design their own bills with their pictures in the center. Then have them write about the topic "If I Were President." Your students finished dollar bills and creative writing assignments would make a unique Presidents' Day bulletin board display.
For Presidents' Day, have your students research the Presidents that are featured on the penny, nickle, dime, and quarter. Then, students can make posters about the interesting facts that they learned about these 4 Presidents and 4 coins.
"If I Was President, I Would ..." For this assignment, students create a flag background and design their portraits on top. These colorful projects and creative writing assignments would make an eye-catching Presidents' Day bulletin board display.
For Presidents' Day, have your students write biographies about Abraham Lincoln. For these cute projects, Abraham Lincoln's hat opens up to reveal the writing area. I would make a bulletin board display for these projects with a title such as: "Hats Off To Abraham Lincoln on Presidents' Day!"
This teacher has used black and white images of Mt. Rushmore, the Jefferson, Washington, and Lincoln Memorials, and pictures of Kennedy and Obama to create a stunning Presidents' Day bulletin board display.
