Inauguration Day is just around the corner. This event happens only once every 4 years and is a great chance to teach your kids a little about American history and the United States government.
Here’s the basics of the day – The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court will read the Oath of Office outside the Capitol Building and the President and Vice President will swear to do their jobs to the best of their abilities and to be faithful to the Constitution. After the official ceremony, there will be a huge parade up Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House. There will be official meals and parties the rest of the day.
