This 45 to 60-minute program geared toward grades 3-8 will be presented by the Eisenhower Foundation.

Students are never too young to practice the American right to share their concerns with elected officials. In this program, students analyze children’s letters to President Eisenhower, noting their purpose and topics of the 1950s – from Elvis’s haircut to civil rights. They then practice civic engagement by writing their own letter to the current President of the United States about an issue that concerns or interests them. Prior to the program, students should choose a letter to President Eisenhower from those offered at

All programs, offered via a web link in partnership with the Presidential Primary Sources Project, will take place at 2pm ET / 1 pm CT / 12 pm MT / 11 am PT.
