TeachersFirst’s U.S. Presidential Inaugurations Resources

Every four years, the U.S. celebrates the peaceful transition of power from one administration to the next. 2009 was an especially historic year in U.S. history, with the juxtaposition of Lincoln’s 200th birthday and the inauguration of President Barack Obama, but every inauguration is unique in some way.

No matter what grade level you teach or candidate you support, Inauguration Day is an important event worthy of notice in your classroom. This list of reviewed resources from the TeachersFirst database will help you find ways to include the inauguration and its historical significance in the context of your curriculum.
