Snow Day/Winter Recess Learning – Five Interactive Presidents’ Day Activities

Remind Graphic

This winter I used Remind to send parents and students notifications of extra-credit learning tasks I had posted on my class blog. I encouraged students to continue learning when school was not in session. The list below is just one example of these interactive activities.

1.  Abraham Lincoln’s Crossroads – For Advanced Middle School and High School Students

3. Presidents’ Day Exclusive Videos from History.com – For all students

Since my students are off this week, I embedded this video on my class blog with a short response writing task. I then sent a Remind notification to parents informing them of this extra-credit opportunity.
