Perks and Perils

Students research the life of the first family. In this U.S. Government activity, students take a White House quiz, read an article about the first family and write in their journals about a typical day in their lives versus what a day would be like as a president's child. Students write letters to the Obamas and then research a son or daughter of a former president.
