Thomas Jefferson – Fascinating Facts
Thomas Jefferson is the third president in this 10-Day Series of Facts and Worksheets here at Mama’s Learning Corner. He’s also the 3rd President of the United States of America. During his adult life, he served as Secretary of State under George Washington, Vice-President with John Adams, and then as President of the United States from 1801-1809.
I find Thomas Jefferson to be such an interesting person to study! There are a multitude of fascinating facts about our third president, including these:

- Jefferson loved to read. He is quoted as saying, “I cannot live without books.”
- Thomas Jefferson lived a very scheduled life. Each morning, he began his day by soaking his feet in cold water. He then read his law books, ran two miles, rode his horse, and practiced his violin.
