Quick: Name all 44 U.S. Presidents. In order.
A lot of us will get off to a good start, then struggle with the mutton-chop era, and then stumble through all those guys with beards between Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt…
Today’s Washington Post has a story about a Virginia schoolkid who wrote a song to help her learn the names of all 44 presidents in order.
It’s not exactly toe-tapping, knee-slapping stuff – and some of the rhymes are a stretch – but teachers, students, and history nerds will enjoy it.
The song (with slide show) can be seen and heard here.
