The White House Webquest

With the upcoming election, I have developed materials which you may find of value to use with your students. The first resource is a webquest on the White House.

The White House is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.What do you know about where the President lives during his term in office?Did you know that President Jimmy Carter was the first to install solar energy panels on the White House or that President Ronald Reagan had them removed? Did you know that President Benjamin Harrison and his family didnt like to shut off the new electric lights(installed in 1891), afraid to touch the switches or that a specially large bathtub was installed in the White House for President William Taft who weighed 332 lbs?Learn more about the White House with this fun and informative webquest.

Have a wonderful school year!
