I got a few copies of this book from Scholastic. It is an easy read for my third graders, but we didn't have a lot of time so it worked out well!
Then I made this cute Venn Diagram to compare and contrast Lincoln and Washington.
I had them write a paragraph about Washington, a paragraph about Lincoln, and a paragraph explaining their similarities (sorry I didn't take a picture of that). We put them on my bulletin board with these cute headers.
They really enjoyed learning about Lincoln since we have been so focused on Washington and the Revolution! How did you celebrate President's Day?
