||Smithsonian Presidents and First Ladies
By Dk Publishing
Meet the extraordinary men and women who inspire, amaze, and enthrall us. The people who have lived in the White House -- and those who were presidents and first ladies before the great home was built -- are a chain of personalities who embody the peaceful succession of power which defines the United States system of government.
Did you know... James Buchanan was a bachelor, so Harriet Lane, his niece, served as the nation's official hostess? John Tyler had two first ladies? Eleanor and Franklin D. Roosevelt were distant cousins? Both Barbara Bush and Laura Bush chose literacy as a focus of their work as first ladies?
The clearly presented Key Events section on every page of Smithsonian Presidents and First Ladies shows what happened and when during the time of each president's administration. Biography boxes report data on important dates, places, and people in the lives of our leaders. Finding out about the complex, colorful story of the powerful couples in American history has never been simpler -- or more fun -- with this fact-packed instant reference. Ages 9-12.
HOW TO MAKE A QUADRARAMA
A week ahead of time, let the children choose the President they want
to present and bring to school four interesting facts that they have learned about the president they have have researched.
Each child needs four 9"squares of white construction paper. The paper
is folded following the teacher's instructions. "Fold each sheet in half
from corner to corner until you can see two large triangles. Unfold. Fold
it the other way from corner to corner. Now your paper has two creases that make
and "x" on the paper. With your scissors start cutting from one corner
TO THE HALFWAY MARK.
When you fold the two small triangles one on top of the other,
you have a base for one part of your quadrarama. Don't glue these together yet.
You want to make your background first. You will do this with all four pieces
of white construction paper until you have four sections. Make scenes with construction paper, markers,
crayons, and craft material.
When your scenes are all finished, attach a 24" piece of yarn
to the bottom, bring it up through the middle and glue the four sections together
with Elmer's glue. You will need to do some extra gluing to make it really neat, and you
may have to hold it together with large paper clips until it is dry." It is now ready to hang
from the ceiling or a curtain.
