Abe Lincoln's Dream

Students have been knee-deep in Civil War history. Students are connecting so many pieces from the American Revolutionary War to the Civil War.

Studying the Gettysburg Address, its meaning and its purpose, students prepare to learn a section of the address to create a Gettysburg Mashup.

To accompany our study, students also created a likeness of Abe Lincoln as inspired by Lane Smith's book pictured here:

Using lesson plans from the website: Deep Space Sparkle
students began making their Abe Lincoln.

Here you can see how each child's Abe Lincoln is paired with their section from the Gettysburg Address.

Below is our Mashup of the Gettysburg Address.  Want to know more about learning the address? Check out this site: Learn the Address Project
