US Presidents: John F. Kennedy


Catching up with my class.... Two weeks ago we did John F. Kennedy. He was the 35th president, and was only in office for 2 years when he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. 

One of the first things he did in office was start the Peace Corps. This is something that is still going on today. You can read more about that HERE

Kennedy was also determined to get America into space. He wanted to be the first country to land someone on the moon. He didn't live to see it but America did succeed.

Here's a YouTube video that goes into more detail on JFK:

Our activity this week was to make a sculpture of JFK, or something pertaining to him.
