This week was right before President’s Day and second graders were going to start their biography unit next week, so we read Looking at Lincoln by Maira Kalman.
We talked about biographies, where they are located and how they are organized in the library (in alphabetical order by their last name). We talked about searching for information about people by their names in the catalog (Subject , Contents and Summary of a book) and by categories or what they did (Broader Topic – President, Civil War, etc.).
Featured Books – Abraham Lincoln, Presidents
Coloring Page – Abraham Lincoln
Video – Looking at Lincoln
