President’s Day Coin Activity
Thin printer paper
Crayons, pencils or colored pencils.
Place a coin on a hard surface. Turn the coin so the picture of a president is facing upward and cover it with the paper. Then rub the sharpened side of a crayon, pencil or colored pencil over the hidden coin to make a coin rubbing. The image of the president will appear on the paper.
While the children are working, discuss what traits made the presidents on the coin a good leader. Ask if they think that is how God wanted a leader to act.
Abraham Lincoln- Penny (hard work and fairness)
Thomas Jefferson-Nickel (freedom lover, generous)
Franklin Delano Roosevelt-Dime ( Determination, did not let polio stop him, helped the disadvantaged and poor)
George Washington- Quarter (Honesty and courage.)
John F. Kennedy- Half dollar (Civil rights for all)
