Gettysburg Address, Civil War Simulation and Lincoln's Assassination Trial

Time flew today was we moved through three areas of focus. As a class we took time to analyze the Gettysburg Address by identifying essential vocabulary and considering the deeper meaning of those words. In the next couple of weeks we will be working on our own speeches (writing and presenting) so stay tuned for video! Next we jumped right into our Civil War Simulation. They absolutely love rolling the dice and having to make decision about their fate. After each scenario they are expected to write a reflection in the voice of a Civil War soldier. Finally we ended our time together by talking about our upcoming mock trial that we will be participating in. This is one of my favorite activiites because i love watching students think of their feet and step out of their comfort zone.
