Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher: February Pinterest Pick 3 Linky- Presidents Day

February Pinterest Pick 3 Linky- Presidents Day

I am excited to be a part of this fun link up! I have chosen 3 of my favorite Pinterest finds for the classroom in February. Since I am a sucker for social studies, I am including some fun activities for Presidents Day.

My first pick is this adorable log cabin craft made with peanut butter, pretzels and crackers!

I am thinking that this could be turned into a STEM project after my kiddos read about Abraham Lincoln! I have some peanut allergies, so I intend to use frosting instead of peanut butter. Click on the picture to go to the pin. The site includes directions.

My second pick is a fun math and measurement activity with Abraham Lincoln!

Students can compare their height to the height of Lincoln. I would extend this activity and have kiddos measure each other in both metric and standard measurements. My kids need some measuring practice! 

My third pick is this great list with links to virtual field trips to learn about past presidents.

I am working hard to incorporate more technology into my classroom and these virtual field trips look like fun. Most of my kids will never have the opportunity to see The White House or Mount Vernon. It would be so meaningful to take a virtual field trip.

Check out the other pins that my blogging buddies have come up with!

  1. Thanks for sharing such great ideas! I love the log cabin idea and may have to try it out in my class. I would love to see pictures if your class builds them. The virtual field trip list is amazing and so informative! Thanks for sharing and linking up!

  2. Love the log cabin. Would need to substitute the peanut butter due to allergies. Was thinking chocolate frosting would work! Yummy!

  7. I love your Lincoln-height pin. Although I'm married to a 6'4 guy, (lol) lots of my students don't have that perspective--and I really like how it incorporates measurement in a fun way. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Love your 6' 4" Lincoln!!!

  9. I love the Abraham Lincoln idea! I would just have trouble making one look that good!
