Second and Third Grade learned about Abraham Lincoln from a Historical Perspectives Program. During the presentation, Abraham Lincoln changed from adult, to child, and back to adult. He introduced himself and his childhood and then went back to his childhood and acted through the life of Abe. He talked about schooling when he was a kid and invited kids up to teach them square dancing. He taught about seeing slavery and thinking that it shouldn’t be that way. The play ended dramatically by the character saying he is going to the theater and all the kids gasped!
Here’s what McKenzie students had to say about the program:
“I liked learning about Abraham Lincoln!”
“I didn’t know Abraham Lincoln had two moms because his first mom died from sickness.”
“I didn’t know that when he went to the theater that he got shot and he died.”
