    This is a very well written lesson. The introductory activity is sure to hook my 8th graders. The activities are age appropriate and look to do a nice job of walking students through the evolution of President Lincoln. I will report back after I complete this lesson to follow-up my predictions.

    I enjoyed this videos, as did my class. But I was overcome at the hatred in the heart of Lenore Bennett Jr.
