February 12th will mark Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday. On lincolnbicentennial.gov, you can find out about the plans for celebrations all over the country. I didn't see any celebration planned in North Carolina, but that doesn't mean you can't have a celebration in your classroom. On this site, you can find lesson plans, an Honest Abe Quiz, coloring pages, podcast, and a whole lot more.
