Lincoln Legacy Learning Kits

Here's an example of an amazing resource that's free for Illinois teachers, the Lincoln Legacy Learning Kits courtesy of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library. Any resident in Illinois with access to a local public library can simply check out a suitcase filled with resources such as artifacts, books, primary sources, and DVDs related to one of four topics (inter-library loan #s provided):
  1. Abraham Lincoln Biography Reading Kit(OCLC#244638162),
  2. Mary Todd Lincoln(OCLC#244638165),
  3. Civil War Soldiers Kit(OCLC#244637504), or
  4. Slavery in Illinois(OCLC#244638607).
Once ordered, these suitcases are delivered to your public library (where you also return it within 14 days).
