Students 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.
