President Washington

We started our second day of learning about our greatest presidents by making log cabins from stick pretzels.

We read a story about how many of the people in rural and colonial America had to cut down trees to build their homes. Abe Lincoln grew up in a log cabin.

President Washington is a great example we learned about because he never lied.

We read the story of how when he was a boy, he was playing with an axe, and whittled/chopped down a young cherry tree.

When his father noticed that the tree had been cut down, he asked who had done that.

Young George could not tell a lie, and admitted that he had. It disappointed his father, but he was pleased that the boy already had integrity.
