Unit—‘Lincoln, the Great Emancipator?’
1. The teacher will assign to each student either a date, event or person found in this unit.
2. Each student will then proceed to the front of the class where they will entertain questions that can only elicit a yes/no response.
3. If a student asking a question receives an affirmative answer he will be allowed to ask another question. The student will continue in this manner until he can guess the identity of the student in front of the class or receives a negative response.
4. The student who stumps the most students during this lesson will be declared the winner and receive a small gift.
