This 80-click Prezi gives you some short, fun, and interesting biographical facts on Abraham Lincoln. Then, the Prezi jumps into Lincoln's run for the Senate and eventual run for the White House. Finally, the Prezi concludes with some basic information on the Confederate States of America. This Prezi allows you to make a copy and edit it to meet your needs
Included with your purchase is a KWL Chart activity that will require students to watch History Channel's 10 Things You Don't Know About Abraham Lincoln (22 minutes in length). In addition, you will be supplied with a guided note sheet that students can use to follow along with the Prezi (focus being on the Lincoln-Douglas Debates and the Presidential election), and a short three question primary source analysis looking at Lincoln's House Divided Speech and some excerpts from the Lincoln-Douglas debate. Finally, I have included a assignment or possible extra credit opportunity where students create their own 1860 Election political cartoon. This assignment comes with a grading rubric to use.
