Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address gets a modern makeover.
Read the 272-word Gettysburg Address. What did Lincoln's words mean to the country in 1863? 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), neatly write your contemporary words for the Gettysburg Address. When the marker has dried, erase the pencil lines.
Cover a tabletop with recycled newspaper. Illustrate a scene from your speech with Crayola Watercolors and Paint Brushes.
To create an aged look, dampen the bag with water and a wet brush. Fill your 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 your artwork. It will be an aged-looking Gettysburg Readdressed.
