In this interdisciplinary lesson by PBS Learning Media, students will participate in a variety of hands-on activities to gather facts about Abraham Lincoln. Students will match vocabulary words with pictures to piece together a timeline of Lincoln's life, gather various facts about his work as a lawyer on the prairie, and also gain insight into Lincoln through objects and artifacts of his life. Students will then select classroom objects that best tell a story about them and/or their class, later reflecting upon the timeline of Lincoln's life while creating their own personal timelines.
