Product Description
Abraham Lincoln - President's Day STEM - In this STEM challenge your students will learn some facts about Abraham Lincoln and will complete the challenge of building a one room log cabin similar to his childhood home. Students must stick to a budget and use the available supplies. This STEM challenge meets several NGSS standards and encourages critical thinking, budgeting, and engineering skills.

Suggested Plan of Implementation:

Prior Week: Send home the parent letter requesting supplies. Gather needed materials.
Day One – Introduce and discuss the “Let’s Talk About It – Abraham Lincoln's Cabins” slide and the "Abraham Lincoln" slide. Introduce the STEM Challenge.
Day Two – Introduce and discuss the budget options. Use the planning page to illustrate or write out the building idea.
Day Three – “Purchase” supplies for the build. Work on budget. Begin the building process.
Day Four – Work on and complete the structure.
Day Five – Test the structure. Complete the Self-Evaluation Page

This is certainly not the only way to use these materials. They are designed to be flexible and be used to best suit each classroom and teacher based on the ability of the learner, time constraints and teacher preference.
