Homer is proud to partner with Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello this Presidents’ Day to give young children a virtual tour of the home of America’s 3rd President and to teach them more about Jefferson’s many accomplishments. We’ve also prepared lessons on George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, Presidential Pets, and a fun game that allows kids to decorate their own White House!
Here’s an overview of all Homer’s lessons highlighting US Presidents.
- Head over to the Discover the World section and view U.S. Presidents. You’ll find lessons on George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Thomas Jefferson.
- Time to take a tour of the White House. Visit “What a House” in the Discover the World section of the app and scroll down to White House Wonders. Your child will visit the president’s home inside, outside, upstairs, and down. Then, jump on over to If I Were President in the same section and let your child create his or her own White House! Once finished, they can share their creations in a postcard by way of our Pigeon Post.
- Check out a new take on Yankee Doodle and sing along to You’re a Grand Old Flag. Post your #YankeeDoodleDanceParty clips and photos on your social channels.
