Abraham Lincoln

Honor Abe Lincoln with a set of activity-based worksheets that can be used independently and in collaborative groups. Young historians participate in a listening activity where they fill in the missing blanks in a passage while being read aloud to. They also correct spelling mistakes and unscramble words before composing questions to ask a partner that refer to the text for the answers. Finally, a timed writing prompt rounds out the collection of worksheets.
