During the month of February, we learned about famous Presidents and worked on Common Core Standards in History. Those standards include sequencing events, using timelines, and finding evidence to support historical claims. We used our research to create a Reader's Theater on Abraham Lincoln. To incorporate more standards, we decided to perform for another class in New Jersey!
We practiced and practiced using our scripts and made masks to look like Abe. Then, we Skyped our friends in New Jersey and performed for them. You can watch a practice video below.
The fun doesn't stop there though! The next day, we Skyped with the class again and they performed and taught us about George Washington! They, too, did a wonderful job. What a great learning experience for us!
