Tomorrow is an important day for the American society. Seize the chance to integrate current events and citizenship into your classroom, even in the smallest way.


Let’s put political parties aside. The inauguration of the 45th president of the United States is upon us. If January has flown by and you’ve been too busy to think of ways to include patriotic activities in tomorrow’s lessons plans, don’t fret — we’ve got suitable ideas for all ages. Whether you spend minutes or an hour focusing on the inauguration, take the chance to honor American history and tradition in a notable way.

Early Childhood: Ask the class to generate words and characteristics they associate with the president. This will prompt a discussion about leadership, citizenship, and character.

Middle Childhood: Have students design a logo that represents their idea of democracy. As a class, discuss the importance of democracy and the tradition of Inauguration Day.

High School: Enlist the help of students to create an anchor chart that showcases the process of becoming the president.

Ticket out the Door (All Grade Levels): Prompt students to pretend they’ve been elected president. Ask each individual to make a list of the top three goals they hope to accomplish before the end of his or her term in office.
