Diorama ProjectA diorama is a three dimensional scene from a book, play, or other source. It iseasiest to use a small box such as a shoe box or cereal box.First, select your scene and plan it out on a piece of paper. Make sure youremember to include all of the required elements, including the background andcaption/explanation card.Second, begin making articles for your scene. These may be hand drawn/made,pictures from magazines, computer generated, or any other appropriate model. Keepin mind that the articles must be close to scale, the correct size compared to the rest ofthe scene. Your diorama will not look right if the shoe is bigger than the tree it is next to!Third, begin decorating the scene. Glue in the appropriate background, andthen arrange the other items for the best look. When you are happy with the placementof the items, glue them carefully in place.Last, complete a final copy caption card that tells the title of your scene andexplains why that scene is important to your project. You might even tell why you chosethat particular scene. Be sure to attach the caption card carefully to the outside of thebox where your audience is sure to see it.BONUS POINTS can be earned by appropriately decorating the outside of the box.DIORAMA RUBRICPossible score 10 points5 points0 pointsRequired elements Backgroundsceneryappropriate totime periodSome scenery fits timeAll scenery fits time period period, some out ofsyncNo scenery evident;Scene does not fit timeperiodModels/itemsexplain theselected event5 or more items/models to 1-4 items/models torepresent the scenerepresent the sceneNo items/modelsevidentCaption card tellstitle and explainsthe sceneCaption card tells title,explains the importanceof the scene; correctconventionsIncomplete descriptionof scene; does notNo caption cardexplain importancepresentof the event; manyerrors in conventionsNeatness evidentwith an attractivedesignItems in scale with neat,attractive designSome items out ofscale; neatness not tograde levelCultivating Character Farmer to IconPoorly constructed,sloppy work not toability10

Oftenhe would readby the light ofthe fire andpractice writing.When he had nopencil andpaper, Abecompleted hiswork withcharcoal and aflat shovel.Abe learned how tomultiply numbers andsolve word problems.Although he only wentto school “by littles” hewas an excellentstudent. He alwaysstudied everything hecould get his hands on,and was often seenreading instead ofworking at his chores.8Abe evenAbe Lincoln wasborn in a log cabin inHodgenville, Kentucky onFebruary 12, 1809, thesecond child of Thomasand Nancy HanksLincoln.

In this essayhe had to explain howto use numbers in aproportion to find amissing number.94Abe learnedLincoln’s Log Cabinhow to measureaccurately and to convertnumbers from onemeasurement to another.This mathematical skillwould come in veryhandy later in life whenhe was a clerk in a store,a land surveyor, and asthe post master of thepost office in New Salem,Illinois.He also wrote a shortpoem about himself:5was built of logs cut and prepared by Abe’s father, Thomas. Like all pioneerchildren, Abe and Sarah worked hard every day to help their family build their farm.Abe became very skilled at using an ax and working with wood.

In the Winter of Big SnowManyneighborsmany pioneer familiesfroze or starved to deathduring the Winter of 18301831. Abe’s family hadmoved to central Illinois, andlike other Illinois families,were snowbound for weeks.Abe had to trudge throughdeep drifts to get food for hisfamily. When he fell throughthe ice, his feet almost frozebefore he got to a neighbor’s.They saved his feet fromfrostbite, so he was able toreturn home with the neededsupplies.were illiterate, not ableto read or write, so Abekindly helped them bywriting letters for them or byreading their mail to them.“There were someschools, so called; but noqualification was everrequired of a teacher, beyondthe readin’, writin’, andcipherin’ to the Rule of Three--If a straggler supposed tounderstand Latin, happenedto sojourn in theneighborhood, he was lookedupon as a wizard.”1611LincolntraveledYoung Abrahamdown theMississippi Riveron a flat boat tosell the owner’sgoods at market.In New Orleans hesaw a slaveauction. Later hewrote a friend, “Ifslavery is notwrong, thennothing is wrong.”showed kindness forstrangers too. Once he helpeda traveling soldier by giving himfood.“I had been fishingone day and caught a little fishwhich I was taking home. Imet a soldier on the road, and,having been always told athome that we must be kind tosoldiers, I gave him my fish.”1217When Abewas 9his motherNancy Hanks Lincoln diedof the milk sickness.Because it was a droughtyear, there was very littlefood for the farm animals.The cows were foraging inthe fields and had eatenleaves of the white snakeroot plant. The poisons inthe plant got into the milkand made Nancy die at ayoung age. Abe and hissister Sarah weredevastated by their loss.13As a young manAbe moved to NewSalem, Illinois. He was verypopular among thetownspeople, and was wellknown for telling humorousstories. Once when he wasa clerk in Denton Offutt’sstore, a gang of men knownas the Clary’s Grove boyscame and challenged Abe tofight. Their leader, JackArmstrong could not“whip” Abe unless the restof the gang helped him.Abe earned their respectfor being such a strongwrestler; Armstrong andAbe became lifelongfriends.18During the Blackhawk WarAbe’s fatherAbraham waselected captain of hiscompany. Many of theClary’s Grove boysenlisted with him. Oneday an old Indianwandered into camp,carrying an official letterthat said he wasfriendly. Some of theother soldiers wanted tokill him anyway. CaptainLincoln, backed up bythe Clary’s Grove boys,saved the old man’s life.14Thomas brought home Sarah Bush Johnston to be Abe and his sister Sarah’s newstepmother. She brought three of her own children, Matilda, John, and Elizabeth to thesecond Lincoln home in southern Indiana, and “proved a good and kind mother” to Abe.19HonestAbeNewSalem,Illinoisalways tried to do theright thing. Once heborrowed a book, The Life ofGeorge Washington, fromhis neighbor, JosiahCrawford. It wasaccidentally damaged byrain, so Abe volunteered towork for free to repay hisneighbor.

Abe also readplays by Shakespeare, booksabout surveying and law, andcontinued learning aboutgrammar. Abe read fictionalnovels such as Robinson Crusoe,read from the Bible, and enjoyedAesop’s Fables. Some historiansbelieve that the idea for Abe’sfamous “House Divided” speechwas from the Book of Genesis orfrom a fable called, “The Lion andFour Bulls.”had four sons, three ofwhom died in childhood.Only Robert lived toadulthood. Abe and Marywere both distraught overtheir children’s deaths, butstill kept moving forward.Some of the most difficultdecisions Abe had to makewhile in office came whilehe was mourning the deathof one of his children.21Abe with Thomas“Tad” Lincoln26Edward “Eddie” LincolnWilliam “Willie” LincolnAbe became famousMeasurementskillsall over the world when be became our President.

An eyewitness claimedthat he saw Duff by the light of abright moon. Abraham proved thatthe eyewitness was wrong by usingthe 1857 Almanac to show thatthere was no moon that night.Because Jack and his wife Hannahwere his friends, Abe did not evencharge a fee. Many years later,Hannah Armstrong wrote to Abethanking him and letting him knowthat Duff was doing well as a freeman.24was the 16th President of the United States of America during the CivilWar.
