Dear Reader,

Looking for educational activities for your students (or
children) this summer? Take a look at the Surfnetkids
Printables Club

If you’re looking for a project for yourself, here’s an idea.
Some of the buyers of my “How to Add Games to Your Site”
manual have told me that adding games to their classroom
site is going to be their summer project. And, judging
from the Purchase Orders I’ve received, they’ve successfully
gotten their school districts to pay for the manual.
Here’s a printable order form you can use to purchase the
manual with a School Purchase Order.
If you’d rather order online for immediate delivery,
use this page instead.
Today’s John F. Kennedy topic is accompanied by the following game:

John F. Kennedy Presidents of the 20th Century Crossword
American Presidency Game Show

Today’s newsletter is made possible by:

  • You don’t have to be a programmer to add games to your organization’s Web site! Learn how to create interactive word searches, jigsaws and quizzes with the low-cost tools revealed in: “How to Add Games to Your Site

  • Get a FREE DIRECTV Satellite System! The same system that sold for $699 a few short years ago
    is now yours FREE! Hurry, this is a limited time offer. Click here for details!

See ya on the Net,

John F. Kennedy

Purchase a printable handout for just $1.00

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, our thirty-fifth president, was in office only two years and ten months before he was shot to death on November 22, 1963. He is remembered as a charismatic, optimistic leader who believed we could solve problems if we put our country’s interests before our own and worked together.

The American President: John F. Kennedy


This fabulous site was built as a companion to the PBS American President series, and has quite an extensive Kennedy section. Start with Fast Facts (good for short school reports or your research project outline) and then get more depth by visiting the sixteen additional chapters (look for them in the left-hand menu.) Noteworthy ones include First Lady, American Franchise, In His Own Words, Gallery, and Web Resources.

Dallas Morning News: JFK, Dallas, November 22, 1963


“Travel back in time nearly four decades in time to relive one of the saddest chapters in American history: the assassination of President Kennedy in Dallas’ Dealey Plaza.” But before you can reach this special report, you must register with your name, email address, mailing address, and year of birth. But please don’t let that stop you, because the primary source material here is incredible. View original newspapers articles, listen to radio clips, and watch television news snippets, all from local Dallas media.

History Channel: Kennedy Inaugural Speech


Kennedy was inaugurated as the thirty-fifth president of the United States on the steps of the U.S. Capitol on January 20, 1961. During his inauguration address, Kennedy, the youngest man ever elected President, declared “the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans” and the oft-quoted: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” Visit the History Channel Speech Archive to hear the entire fourteen-minute speech in Real Audio format.

The History Place: John F. Kennedy Photo History


This marvelous annotated photo gallery of Kennedy’s life is divided into four sections: Early Years, War Hero, Politician and President. As you progress through the gallery, click on the thumbnail photos for a larger view. I found the War Hero section particularly interesting, as it tells the tale of how Jack entered politics, starting in 1939 London, where his father was serving as United States Ambassador to England. Best of all, The History Place grants permission to use these photos in offline school reports.

John F. Kennedy Library: Biography


This one-page illustrated biography from the JFK Library is chock-full of links to audio files and additional photos, and a real find for teachers and home-schooling parents: six pages of printable worksheets for grades three through five, downloadable in either Adobe PDF or Word format. After reading the biography, visit the rest of the online library, by clicking on Home. Best front page clicks, such as Speeches and Photographs, are found listed under Historical References.
