Since we are Americans, our family incorporates some form of U.S. History in our homeschool studies each year. In younger grades, we study and memorize the 50 states, learn about our Founding Fathers, and study our U.S. Presidents, just to name a few!
I have always wanted to create a simple study for my children to study U.S. Presidents, and I finally finished this project this weekend!
I wrote this for 3rd through 8th graders, so it is adaptable to wide variety of ages and stages.

U.S. Presidents Research Project
My 7th grader is working through Memoria Press’ 200 Questions About American History this year, which is a very adaptable curriculum in that you can add to it or remove from it to adjust the workload for your student.
Because my 7th grader is only answering and memorizing the questions (the lighter version), I am adding this to her studies for the end of the year.
She will need to complete 2-3 each week to finish up before the end of our school year.
We will use DK’s The Presidents Visual Encyclopedia to work through this packet. I also have a multitude of U.S. History books to pull from my shelf should we need them, but I think this particular encyclopedia will work well for us.
You can use these President Pages as a larger unit study to which your child continues to add, as I describe for my 7th grader. She will be 100% independent with this as soon as I tell her my expectations.
You could also use this as an add-on to any U.S. History curriculum.
Do you have a Power Hour with your children? We had one each morning for years after we completed our Bible time. This would be an easy addition to that morning time!
In the packet, I give you detailed instructions and ideas for using this Presidents research project in your own homeschool.
Included in this U.S. President Research Packet:
- Instructions for use and Ideas for your own homeschool
- Directions page for you to print front/back to guide your child each day (shown in the picture above)
