Classroom Magic: Presidents' Day writing activity with video.
16) Social Studies: This is a great activity to incorporate the Dust Bowl or Great Depression. The students would be encouraged to come up with a prompt about how they would run the country differently. What Acts would they come up with or Bills would they pass? How would they deal with the Great Depression if they were the President back then? They can end the activity by drawing their own face in the picture of the dollar bill.
