the presidents for kids? (4th-6th grade)

Something not-so-dry?

I'd love to hear your suggestions!

I saw a $1.00 workbook on the presidents at Target. It's for grades 4 - 6.

I love this book! It might be "young" for a 6th grader, but it would be a good jumping-off point for further study.

Thank you, Ladies!!!

If you have any others, I'm all ears. There is so little competition, we could probably handle most of these.
