Abraham Lincoln

After reading Abe Lincoln's Hat, we talked about all the fun facts we learned about Abraham Lincoln. I wrote some of the details from the story on sentence strips and then the class worked together to put the events in order. You can download a student copy of this here.

Then in writing workshop each student wrote facts they learned about Abraham Lincoln.  We glued this to Abe Lincoln's hat because in the story we learned that he kept his important papers in his hat. This craft is from my teaching partner. I'm not sure where she got it, but she think it's as old as I am. :) An oldie but a goodie, right?

There is also this cool interactive website where you can "build" a log cabin. http://www.indianahumanities.org/Wethepeople/302-module.html

  1. With havin so much content and articles do
    you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd certainly appreciate it.

  2. I leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a
    post on a website or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.
    Usually it's a result of the sincerness displayed in the post I looked at. And on this post "Abraham Lincoln". I was actually moved enough to post a thought :-P I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or do some of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list every one of your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
