Presidents Day Memorization Challenge

 

Today's Snack: Since the President works in the Oval Office in the White House, let's have something oval on this day when we celebrate our nation's top leaders. Something oval is . . . hard-boiled eggs! Eat two of them, with a little salt, and sock down a juicy glass of apple juice to remember the "apple of our eye," each American President.

 

--------------------

 

Supplies:

 

This list

 

Every American citizen should be able to list all of our Presidents. It's time for you to memorize them! It sounds difficult, but keep in mind that memorizing facts really builds your brainpower.

 

Spend a few minutes a day over the next week memorizing this list in order, and you should be able to list all of these names by heart.

 

It helps to memorize them in "chunks" of five names at a time. Work on those five names, in order, and then memorize the next set of five names. Print out this Treat and cut apart the groupings of five Presidents' names into mini index cards. That should help you memorize the list.

 

Then work it so that you can say the first 10 without errors. Then move on to the next five, and memorize them until you can say the first 15! Go forward from there.

 

When you have the whole list memorized, say them out loud to a parent or teacher. Challenge your friends! It's the least you can do, after all they did for us!
