This assignment allows students to read through the ten sentences of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and re-write them into contemporary language. Although there are many ways to do this, I have also included a completed 'answer key' as an example of how to do this. Additionally, there is a Abraham Lincoln Stick Figure assignment included as well (details below)...

Included with the stick figure assignment:

1 Completed Historical Stick figure filled out with answers
2 Blank Historical Stick Figure
3 Mass copies of the "face" of the historical person to print/cut/hand out to class (regardless of grade level, sometimes students find the historical stick figure more approachable if they staple or glue the person's face onto the paper)

Can be adjusted for any grade level!!!

This Stick Figure assignment can be used in a variety of ways, including:
* taking students to a computer lab to individually research
* Filling out as a class using the answer-key stick figure
* Jig-saw, where different groups have different answers and must work together to complete
* Model for class or scaffold by giving certain answers, but not all
* Homework assignment
* Mini-biography reports
* Brainstorming or graphic organizer for a larger biography assignment

The Stick Figure has 10 body parts (Brain, Mouth, Right Hand, Achilles' Heel, Background, Eyes, Shoulder, Left Hand, Heart, Road)
