Comparing George's Stories
President's Day is coming and a great activity to get your students doing some critical thinking is to compare a few books about a president. I am thinking of George Washington in particular. There are a few great and quite different books out there that chronicle his life, or some part of it: George Did It, Big George are two of my favorites, the latter being new in the last year or so. Choose a more traditional biography to add to the exercise, like those written by David Adler. See what your kids come up with - let them do the talking and see where it takes you. Have fun!
