Here are some great sites in incorporate Presidents' Day into your lessons.
I love this site! Students select their cabinet, try to balance the budget, then they need to write a news brief on why they made the choices they did. At the end a newspaper is generated that reports on how you are doing as president. Great for a quick Literacy lesson. Best for grades 4+.
Fraboom - Who Is That President? - I love the site Fraboom (click here to read a review I did on it on my other site, CoolSitesFromSchool.com). Match the president's name with their portrait.
Secrets of Presidents - Select a president and learn a little known fact about them. You could assign a president to each child and they could share a great fact during Morning Meeting. If you want a harder site for older students, try this interactive presidential site.

This site allows you to create your own Presidential Seal.
