Description


"Social Studies" - Early Childhood & Family Programming

At President Lincoln’s Cottage, we use Lincoln’s life to inspire our work. The stories of what happened here historically have the power to bring out the leader in any person today, inspiring courageous ideas, respectful dialogue, and thoughtful compromise. Join our new initiative, Social Studies, which provides programming that encourages the development of social and emotional intelligence through games, interactive play, and stories.

For our youngest learners, Social Studies programming focuses on nurturing these skills through interactive storytelling and hands-on lessons that help foster self-awareness, self-management, relationships, and responsible decision-making skills.

About:

While living at the Soldiers' Home, Lincoln made nation-changing decisions about the country and freedom, most notably the Emancipation Proclamation. While here, President Lincoln persisted even though he had moments of self-doubt and worried that he might fail. He overcame his struggles because a united country and freedom for all was a dream worth fulfilling. Bring your early learner(s) to join President Lincoln's Cottage in an exploration of their own dreams while learning that they have the potential to make them come true.

Program includes:

  • Group reading of Maybe: A Story About the Endless Potential in All of Us by New York Times Best Selling Author Kobi Yamada and Illustrated by Gabriella Barouch

  • Create a meaningful keepsake to store your hopes and dreams

  • Participate in an interactive activity to engage your imagination and explore possibilities
