After reading Abe Lincoln's Dream, a children's story about the legacy of America's sixteenth president, use these activity sheets to extend learning and discussion. This packet includes a word search, acrostic poem, and writing activity. Students will write about their aspirations and help each other think of ways to reach their goals. They will also consider the characteristics that make a good president. These are fun reading extension activities for Presidents' Day.
