Abraham Lincoln



“I view [education] as the most important subject which we as people can be engaged in.”

–Abraham Lincoln

February 12th will mark Abraham Lincoln’s 200th birthday.  On lincolnbicentennial.gov, you can find out about the plans for celebrations all over the country.  I didn’t see any celebration planned in North Carolina, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a celebration in your classroom.  On this site, you can find lesson plans, an Honest Abe Quiz, coloring pages, podcast, and a whole lot more.
