Happy Birthday George Washington!

Did you know that George Washington’s birthday is on February 22nd? There's so much to discover about this favorite American soldier and President!  Wouldn't it be a perfect month to let the learning sparks fly and add a little week-long celebration in honor of him to your studies? Perhaps even plan a party!

From his efforts to throw a rock all the way across the river to his persistent battle for freedom, George Washington has become someone who is much admired. Do you remember the legend of George Washington and the cherry tree? It's perhaps one of the first familiar character lessons young children learn.

"It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible."
—George Washington
