Hello, I hope you enjoy your visit to our site. If you have comments you can send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I created this site because I enjoy history and find the U.S. Presidents fascinating.
I have read at least one book on all of the decease presidents. I have formatted my notes as bullet point to make them easy to read.
I am adding more facts to various Presidents and First Ladies. I also have been working on a site about Lewis and Clark. It is just in its beginning phases. I hope to have it done for the next school year.
On the left you will find links to facts and trivia about the US Presidents. On the right is a list of topics about US Presidents.
The Presidential Oath of Office
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Qualifications for the Presidency of the United States
Constitution: Article II, Section I, Paragraph 5:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen years a Resident within the United States.
Who Am I? Have students prepare a list of clues based on the facts they find on one president. They should list the clues from the hardest to guess to the easiest. They should read the list to the class. (Perhaps have two teams.) They want to stump the class as long as possible. Give points for the number of clues they gave before the other team guess who they were.
Read some of the trivia and facts to the class. Assign each student or pair of students one president. Go to the library or the internet and have your students find other interesting facts on their assigned President. Have them make a campaign add and bumper sticker for their President. They could create digital posters on glogster.edu.
Have the students prepare and give one minute speeches about their President. Have the students present it in the first person. "I was the 16th President of the United States. etc."
