Lincoln Lesson Idea: Dear Mr. Lincoln
Level - Elementary
Subjects - Social Studies, History, Government, Language Arts, Writing, Geography
Students will research and restate basic facts about Abraham Lincoln.
This site takes out a lot of the "leg work" for teachers preparing for Lincoln's birthday. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to share the online quiz, animated activities, pictures, and other items at this site. Have students complete the online treasure hunt in cooperative learning groups. Challenge students to write their own questions to "Honest Abe."
If you have a volunteer Dad or community member willing to play the role of Lincoln, invite him to come to your class in costume to answer the class' questions!
