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.
