COSI is Open on President’s Day and many other holidays

Do you have plans for your kids day off from school on President’s Day? Why not take a trip to COSI, the #1 Science Center in the USA! Your kids will love it! We went to COSI last month and had a blast with plans to go back this Spring. Check out my family’s full review on COSI.

COSI is normally closed on Mondays, however they will be open on President’s Day Monday, February 21, 2011. Your kids will think this is the best day off from school ever, little do they know that they are likely to learn more at COSI in one day than at school! There is something for every age and interest to learn and have fun with at every exhibit.

    •William Henry Harrison (9th)

    •Ulysses S. Grant (18th)

    •Rutherford B. Hayes (19th)

    •James A. Garfield (20th)

    •Benjamin Harrison (23rd)

    •William McKinley (25th)

    •William H. Taft (27th)

    •Warren G. Harding (29th)

    Only William Henry Harrison wasn’t actually born in Ohio, but he did call Ohio home from the time Ohio became a state. A point of note is that when William Harrison was born, there were no states, only 13 colonies. In fact he was the last President to be elected that could be considered being born under foreign rule. The other 7 Presidents were: Washington, John Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, J. Q. Adams, and Andrew Jackson who were all born as British subjects

    Question #1

    I KNOW McKinley was born in Canton Ohio and that is all I know for sure! Som reason I am thinking Jefferson was, but then I am not sure Ohio was around back then. So I will stick with just the one President
