    You could draw each students profile on black paper, cut it out, then have the students write about a topic, Abe/honesty/etc.

    We are going to make rubbings of pennies and nickels (old and newer) at a center. We are also doing the log cabin activity. I have out the Lincoln logs. We will make a symbol book that has pictures of stovepipe hat, a hatchet and cherry, the American Flag, a log cabin, and a three corner hat. We will learn the reason and myth of the symbols.
    We are going to have a center with Memory cards with symbols for Abraham Lincoln.

    We will read several books. We will practice some songs of America.

    There is a really neat book, "We Were There, Too!: Young People in U.S. History" by Phillip Hoose that has a story about a young girl who sculpted Lincoln.

    I think the book is written for older kids but the story could probably be adapted to Kindergarten.

    I used this story in a summer school class (3rd - 6th grade) and we did a sculpting activity to go along with it.
