Product Description
Have you ever wanted your students to read the Gettysburg Address by President Lincoln for reasons other than just having them memorize it? The address was given just four months after the Battle of Gettysburg where the town was struggling to recover from the horrific battle. Soldiers were still being buried, and the National Cemetery was being dedicated. In this activity, students will read the contents of the speech, then analyze it with the aid of a graphic organizer for each paragraph. They will describe the message, then take the speech and rewrite each paragraph into kid-friendly language. There is also a sheet of 3 questions that ask opinions, and for students to add their own paragraph to the speech.
