Abraham Lincoln Text Set

The UT libraries have a LOT of youth resources (especially non-fiction) about Honest Abe!  This makes our 16th president the perfect first subject for a text set made out of our items.  Of course, this list of materials is not exhaustive, but this is a good jumping off point for learning bout Abe Lincoln.  If you know of other great materials for this set, please share them in the comments!

This text set is aimed at 3rd graders.
