Gettysburg Address
The study of the Gettysburg Address is a great way to introduce young history students to one of the most eloquent arguments in history for American democracy. Here students come face to face with Lincoln's writing and primary source material. This reproducible book provides activities for students to investigate this speech, as well as place it in the larger context of events that led to its writing. Six activities, each with two parts -- narrative and review, help students understand Lincoln, the Battle of Gettysburg and how this address was received in contemporary accounts. This is my favorite in this series!

The Pledge of Allegiance
Introduces students to two Supreme Court cases, editorial cartoons and a wealth of other materials which require them to think about issues central to the U.S. constitution itself. Handouts, discussions and primary source materials (including a reproduction of the 1892 magazine page which first printed the Pledge of Allegiance) are included in this lively, easy-to-use resource.

The Star-Spangled Banner
In studying the national anthem and the flag that inspired it, students will gain insight into why the poem became the national song. The activities have two parts: narrative and review. Students first read the narratives and then review the materials through a variety of activities including crossword puzzles, mapping activities and questions and answers that test for comprehension and understanding. They will learn about the history of flags in the U.S., the battle for Fort McHenry and the story behind Francis Scott Key's famous poem.
