Biographies – President’s Day

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.).

Additional Activities:
Featured Books – Abraham Lincoln, Presidents

Coloring Page – Abraham Lincoln

Word Search – Abraham Lincoln (Printable), Abraham Lincoln (online)

Video – Looking at Lincoln
