Poetry of Abraham Lincoln

Fourth graders analyze Abraham Lincoln's poems "The Bear Hunt" and "My Childhood's Home" for word choice and deeper inquiry into the vocabulary he uses to convey emotion. They identify rhyming words and patterns in these poems. Students classify examples of figurative writing: simile, metaphor, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, personification in the poems. Students are write a commentary on both poems and take a quiz on the details of the poem.

Lesson Planet helps me search from such a large variety of creative and innovative teaching ideas from dedicated teachers. I am always looking for ideas to better teach my students and solicit the help of others in the education field. Many of the lessons guide students from concrete to abstract learning. Keep up the great work!
