Celebrate President's Day with Google Drawings

President's Day is just around the corner. This is a perfect time to introduce students to those who have shaped our nation. It is also a great way to transition to talking to your students about their futures, their dreams, and what they might do if they were President of the United States.

In comes Google Drawings! With Google Drawings, students have a place to write about what they would do if they were president or better yet, they could draw what their first actions would be if elected president.

Check out this If I Were President Template I created in Google Drawings. You can make a copy of it and use it in the classroom with your students.

You might even start out this activity with a discussion about what a president's job entails. However, encourage your students to be creative and come up with ideas for what they want their world to be like. Then have students explain their drawings.

If you want to share all the drawings in one place for the entire class to see, try creating a collaborative Padlet. Students can save their drawings as JPEGs and upload them to the padlet.

Happy President's Day!
