Celebrate national leaders! Open the doors and windows of a government building to reveal memorable accomplishments of presidents and prime ministers.
What is a government? What skills do national leaders need to run a successful government? Flags, languages, faiths, animals, and even buildings are used as national symbols. How are your country's values and actions represented?

Place the second piece of paper under the first, matching the holes with the drawings. Attach with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Fold open each window or door. Write the name of the leader honored inside the flap. Include dates, too. If your windows open from the top, make and glue tiny flaps to keep the windows from flopping down.
