We are using the free resources listed above in conjunction with three that we've purchased at some point in the past: Scholastic's Encyclopedia of the Presidents and Their Times by David Rubel, The Presidents DVD set by The History Channel, and Oriental Trading Company's President Fact Border Trim Set, which is like having humongous flashcards for playing Presidents games.
Because we discussed money as part of our math lessons today (using the aforementioned learningpage.com resources), we also used the information provided at http://www.biography.com/presidents/pres_whos_on_money.jsp to help us prepare our weekly presentation on Presidents on coins and bills.
Depending on how deep you want to get, you can also find quite a bit of information at the US Mint sites for kids and/or educators. They even provide lessons on National Sites and U.S. History as part of the various coin programs that have been implemented.
Needless to say, I think we have enough resources to celebrate Presidents Day this year... and next year... and the year after that...
