White House at Bat: Activity Books

White House at Bat: Activity Books

White House history and American baseball history have been intertwined for more than a century, creating a rich legacy of presidential fans, championship celebrations, and more than a few first pitches.

Sharing this history with students, the White House Historical Association and the Washington Nationals created educational resources for students, most recently in spring 2020 with a series of history focused activity books for the four Racing Presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt).

Additionally, the two organizations hosted the White House at Bat: A Presidential History Challenge in 2016 & 2017 for local D.C. area high school students. The Challenge asked students to create a storyboard for a 50-second video that examined an important decision made by one of the Racing Presidents during their time in the White House.
