Free Printables Abraham Lincoln History Learning for Kids Grades 2-6
I love it when I discover fabulous free resources online. I found a wonderful activity book on Abraham Lincoln at the Texas Dripping Springs Community Library (see Activity Book below.) Thanks so much for sharing! There’s actually a whole series of these books featuring many other famous people. I might just continue to share them in this fashion one by one 😉
So, inspired by this lovely resource, I put together this list of awesome printables, lesson plans, books, crafts, games and videos for a super well rounded learning experience on Abraham Lincoln, and the Civil War. This list targets children in grades 2 to roughly 6, I’d say. Naturally, pick and choose whatever you believe your children, and yourself, will enjoy the most. Need not do everything in here of course! And if you have any favorites, do let me know about them in the comments below.
Happy history learning!
