Woodrow, The White House Mouse

For this project, we read Woodrow, The White House Mouse by Peter and Cheryl Barnes. We've been learning about leaders in government in our class. After reading this book and others, we discussed the good and the bad of being President of the United States. We brainstormed our ideas on a Kidspiration chart.

If I Were President Chart

One of the things we learned about the President is that he or she always has to dress up. We took pictures of ourselves with the digital camera and used Kid Pix to add fancy things that we would wear if we were President. We also wrote the most important rule we would make if we were President of the United States. Maybe someday you will see one of us in the White House!
