Free Printables

Presidents of the United States Activities for Elementary Learners with FREE Printable

My kids are nuts for American History right now, especially when it comes to studying wars and the Presidents of the United States.  

The printables and activities for elementary learners shown below were definitely designed and created just for them.

In fact, they actually helped create them!  All three kiddos at home spent weeks researching and studying presidents of the United States. And my oh my did they have fun!

We hope you find as much enjoyment in these activities and printables as we have!
Presidents of the United States Activities for Elementary Learners
Learning about the Presidents of the United States of America can be a bit tricky because there are so many to remember.  

For those that struggle learning names, and putting faces to names, the process can be an actual nightmare.  I fall into both of these categories.  Lol.

When it came to creating activities to help kids, we wanted to be sure to provide as many different learning options as possible, so that everyone can learn their U.S. Presidents.

Presidents of the United States Writing Strips

Dinomite loves to write right now. He finds it enjoyable and stress relieving.  


Bulldozer is all about spelling lately.  He prides himself in being able to spell as many words as possible.  


Princess likes to know just as much, if not more than her older brothers just to drive them crazy.  Lol.


For all these reasons we decided to put these writing strips on our shelves.  


Now, none of the kids write the names of all of the U.S. Presidents at once.  


They do about twelve at a time, but that's the great thing about having this resource with ALL of the presidents. You can pick and choose which ones you want to use.

Presidents of the United States First Name Clip Cards


Presidents of the United States First Name Clip Cards

Learning the names of ALL of the Presidents of the United States of America can be so challenging for some.  We decided that these clip cards might be the best way to help with that process.  

The kids had an absolute blast with them when they were presented.  They thought it was so funny to try out the names that weren't correct out loud to each other.  All three laughed so much.

Presidents of the United States Last Name Clip Cards

These cards were a bit more challenging than the first name clip cards shown above, but they were equally entertaining.  So much laughter and enjoyment was had as these cards were introduced.


As with all U.S. Presidents activities, it's very rare that the kids complete all cards at one time. They do however go back to them again and again.

Presidents of the United States Sequencing Activity

Once the kids felt comfortable with the names and pictures of the U.S. presidents, they attempted this activity.  We used a set of the U.S. Presidents nomenclature cards as a control when the kids needed help.


I was so impressed with how well the kids did with this activity.  They really nailed it and enjoyed it so much. There was laughter, cheering, and they took such pride in their work.

Presidents of the United States Who Am I? Activity


Presidents of the United States Who Am I? Activity


This is by far the most prized activity on the shelves right now, and it should be! 


All three kids helped create it.  Those weeks of research... 


It was all about these Who Am I? cards.


And it was really funny, because after they were finished, my husband and the kids all mentioned how nice it would be to include all of the facts in a book.  Needless to say, I had to deliver.  Lol.


For this activity the kids read a list of unbiased, diversity sensitive facts about a president, and match it up with his picture and/or name card.


The book is the control, if needed, but is also great to use on its own.  My kids love just finding a comfy place to sit and read it for fun.  


My Book of American Presidents in Action


We all learned so much about our presidents through this activity and book.

United States Presidents, First Ladies, and Vice Presidents Nomenclature Cards


United States Presidents, First Ladies, and Vice Presidents Nomenclature Cards


The activity the kids were most excited to attempt when all of these resources landed on our shelves was this one.


Laying out the Presidents of the United States of America in order was thrilling to the kids.

They wanted to match up every U.S. President to every First Lady by laying the First Lady cards on top of their corresponding president card.


U.S. First Ladies Nomenclature Cards in Action


Then they did the same thing with Vice Presidents of the United States.

Dinomite was more thrilled than any of them to do the work because he created the First Lady and Vice President Nomenclature cards.
