Tell them you had found other types of primary sources that prove that Abraham was real. Pass sources out to each of your groups and discuss how this helps us know that Abraham Lincoln was real.
Students will be able to write about and orally describe the other types of primary sources: letters, photographs, maps, and newspaper articles and how they can help verify that something is true. They will continue to be exposed to the terms: artifacts, letters, newspsper articles, photographs and maps as primary sources and the idea that websites, like the TDC are places they can go to find primary sources.
