Today is the 200th birthday of President Lincoln. I have been looking forward to this day since the summer. As part of the celebration, all the fourth and fifth graders at Susnet Ridge School are putting on a wonderful assembly. Along with the assembly we have collaborated together on voicethread to talk about what we have learned about the President. Mr. Hope’s class is participating in a collaboration with Water’s Edge Elementary in Palm Beach, Florida. Additionally, we are all saying the famous “Gettysburg Address” at 9:30CDT as part of the Guinness Book of World Records. I can’t wait to see all the students in their red, white, and blue – singing their hearts out. Students have also created movies and other tech projects as part of the assembly. The main website for hosting all these things is lincoln212.pbwiki.com You can see the voicethreads, links to the movies and other important information concerning President Lincoln. Happy 200th!
