Fun Facts About Presidents

Whether you're planning learning activities for kids about the election or President's Day, pairing learning and a fun activity is sure to make the information stick in your kids' brains. The Barack Obama Paper Bag Puppet is the perfect craft to make while you teach your kids fun facts about different presidents! A paper bag puppet is easy enough to make that your students will still be able to pay attention to what you're telling them. Without further ado, some fun facts about presidents:

  1. Jimmy Carter was the first president to be born in a hospital. He was born on October 1, 1924 in Plains, Georgia.

  2. Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first president whose mother was able to vote for him for president.

  3. Three presidents have won Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word Album - Bill Clinton (2005), Jimmy Carter (2007), and Barack Obama (2006, 2008).

  4. The White House's first website made its debut in October of 1994 under the Clinton administration.

  5. James Garfield, the 20th president, was the first president to be left-handed.

  6. Andrew Jackson taught his parrot to say curse words. The bird had to be removed from President Jackson's funeral because it wouldn't stop swearing.

  7. Ulysses S. Grant got a speeding ticket for riding his horse too fast down a Washington street.

  8. William Howard Taft became the only ex-president to serve as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He effectively became the only person to serve as the head of two branches of government.

  9. Herbert Hoover spoke Mandarin Chinese fluently. Before becoming president, he and his family moved to China. They spoke Mandarin around the White House to prevent others from understanding them.

  10. All of the presidents from Ulysses S. Grant to Chester A. Arthur wore beards. Cleveland broke the custom, although he did wear a mustache.

I love this so much! I wish I would have come across this before President's Day had come and gone. Could have been something neat to pass along to my teacher friends. Maybe next year.
