This is a picture of where our lawmakers come together

to discuss and make decisions.

They will take votes to make final decisions.

We are going to take a vote on our favorite President.

Sometimes a vote is called a Poll.

Here are some other fun facts about these two amazing presidents.

They both have large monuments built in their honor.

This is the Washington Monument

This is the Lincoln Memorial

They both appear on Mount Rushmore.

Mount Rushmore is a huge mountain where faces

of famous presidents have been carved into the sides.

George Washington is the first face.

Abraham Lincoln is the last face.

It took 14 years to carve the faces of these presidents.

400 people worked on this project.

It cost almost 1 million dollars to finish.


That’s a whole lot of quarters and pennies!

  17. Katie - I just wanted to tell you that due to a change in my teaching partner's unexpected absence I had to come up with something quick. I printed these books off real quick (I teach resource so small number of kids) and we did them together. These were perfect! So glad you shared them and made them as a freebie. Super awesome quality and cute!
