Welcome back to the Not So Wimpy Teacher podcast!
You asked for an Inauguration Day resource, so I’m delivering.
Today on the podcast, I am walking you through a resource for you to use with your second, third, fourth or fifth graders on Inauguration Day.
Talking about anything political can seem uncomfortable, but when it comes to the inauguration, you don’t have to be political. This is a historical event!
The idea behind teaching isn’t to tell students what to believe but rather give them the tools and the opportunities to decide what they believe on their own. That is what this resource will help you to do.
Episode 89 Takeaways:
- It’s important to teach from both sides of the spectrum.
- Give your students the tools and opportunities to decide what they believe on their own.
- You don’t have to get political when talking about the inauguration.
- The inauguration is a great learning opportunity as it only happens every four years.
- Teach the terminology associated with inauguration.
- Have your students take “friendship oaths.”
You can grab the Inauguration Day freebie from the link below! I can’t wait to see how you use it and what fun things your students come up with!
I hope this episode helped to see that you can teach about the inauguration without stressing about the political side of things.
I’d love to know what other ideas you come up with, so head over to our Instagram @notsowimpyteacher to share those with me!
