Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address gets a modern makeover.
Read the 272-word Gettysburg Address to the class. What did Lincoln's words mean to the country in 1863? Students draft a contemporary Gettysburg Address, applying Lincoln's ideas to today's life. Use current language and situations.
Cut open a brown paper bag with Crayola® Scissors. Turn the bag so the inside faces up. Use a ruler and a pencil to draw light, evenly spaced lines on the bag. With Crayola Markers (NOT washable), students neatly write their contemporary words for the Gettysburg Address. When the marker has dried, erase the pencil lines.
Students cover their tabletop work space with recycled newspaper. Using Crayola Watercolors and paintbrushes, have students illustrate a scene from their speeches. Allow sufficient time for paint to dry.
To create an aged look, dampen the bag with water and a wet brush. Fill a brush with yellow, brown or gray diluted (very watery) black and apply color to the damp surface. Crumple the wet paper into a ball. Fasten with rubber bands and dry.
Remove the rubber bands and flatten the artwork. It will be an aged-looking Gettysburg Readdressed.
