President Fact Files – Free Printable

This year to go along with our U.S/ History studies, the boys and I have been learning about the United States presidents. With it also being an election year, it has been fun to take a look back at the different presidents as well and talk about their terms in office and impact they made on our country. 

To help the boys keep their hands busy during our reading time, I put together some simple President Fact Files for them to color and complete as we talk about each president. Each fact sheet is a half sheet and black and white (to help save on ink costs). All 45 U.S. Presidents are shown, and there is a blank half-sheet included so your kids can make their own as well – let them pretend they are president! 

Each page has room to record the following information: 

  • President’s name
  • Birth date
  • Death date
  • Order served as president
  • Term of office
  • Political party
  • Vice-president(s)
  • First lady
  • Fun fact

We’ve been using the below books to help us fill in the information blanks on each president:

If you like these resources, you may also enjoy the president’s day handwriting pages, another free download! They are not specific to president’s day and include quotes from several presidents to use as copywork. 

President’s Day is done….


…at least on paper in our house it’s done! :) Yes, I know President’s Day isn’t until next Monday, but we finished the lapbook ahead of time and now we are spending time reviewing the things that we’ve talked about. Laurianna is already excited to move onto the next lapbook – and can’t decide what to do (what a problem, huh?). Should it be Little House in the Big Woods or Flat Stanley. I think I’m leaning toward the latter….

For this lapbook we actually glued two file folders together and then added in our mini-books. In this one we covered quite the range of topics: the Presidential seal, our current President, what all happens on President’s Day, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, vocabulary, made a log cabin…the list goes on. Definitely enough to fill two books up! Here are our pictures (which Laurianna was more than happy to model for you!).

In case you are wondering, I got several of the lapbook pieces through Homeschool Share and a few activities through Enchanted Learning, and some I just put together on my own, like the joke section (because the girls just love jokes!!), vocabulary, presidential seal info, etc… I just used some blank templates.

President’s Day Lapbook

We’re putting together a hodge-podge of a lapbook for President’s Day. This will actually end up being a double lapbook (two folders put together). I’ve found some of the lapbook activities on Homeschool Share and also found other activities from Enchanted Learning.

The front of the lapbooks has a picture of the Presidential Seal that the girls each colored and glued onto their books. I will post some more pictures as we complete some of the inside today. We’ve been studying about George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, the history of President’s Day, how we celebrate the day, President Bush, a little about the presidency (we’ll save more for the fall when we talk about the elections….), the Presidential Seal, etc…

Here’s a picture of the front of both girls lapbooks:
