This is a fun creative writing idea for President's Day. Have your students design their own bills with their pictures in the center. Then have them write about the topic "If I Were President." Your students finished dollar bills and creative writing assignments would make a unique Presidents' Day bulletin board display.
This is a great activity to use before, on, or after Election Day. Or even any day in November! After reading Duck for President, we vote whether or not Duck should be president. During this voting process the students give reasons why or why not. Then we use the graphic organizer to plan our friendly letter to Duck.
