I am an 8th grade US History teacher. I created the following video as an alternative to the actual Gettysburg Address speech. It is a short (2:07), stop-motion cartoon video that could work as an introduction to a lesson, a station in a rotation or as homework. It is available 24/7 on my YouTube channel (Keith Piirto) or just click the picture attached.. I have also uploaded on my TPT a PDF of the Gettysburg Address Recital assignment I give to my students each year. It is also free so please take a look. I hope it is helpful to you and your students this year.
