No Business Like Show Business

Young scholars discuss what they do for entertainment regularly and list them on the board, crossing out items that required materials that were not present in the 1800's. They observe a list of forms of entertainment that were popular in Lincoln's time and select two of them to write a story of how their family has been or might be affected by these forms of entertainment.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
