        2) Keep a running log of the students’ responses on a piece of paper on the board.

 

        3) Read

        as a group.

 

      Day #2:

        4) Review the book as necessary before beginning the day’s lesson.

 

        5) As the students are reading as a group, use a map to locate the important areas in Lincoln’s life.

          a) Kentucky – where he was born

 

          b) Indiana – moved in 1816

 

          c) Illinois – moved in 1830

 

          d) Mississippi River

 

          e) Washington D.C.

 

          f) Gettysburg, PA

        6) The students will be marking the areas the group finds in the book on their

 

      individual maps while the teacher locates the areas on the classroom map.

Check for Understanding: Observe the students as they mark on their maps the locations discussed.

Closure: Review the places discussed and marked on the map. Ask the students if they can revise their list completed at the beginning of the lesson (prior knowledge of Lincoln).
