Explore and Tour Presidential Log Cabins

The National Parks Service has created an excellent set of resources teachers and students can use to explore four presidential log cabins. The log cabins featured on the site Discover Presidential Log Cabins were occupied by Washington, Lincoln, Grant, and Theodore Roosevelt. Discover Presidential Log Cabins contains virtual tours and lesson plans based on those tours. The lesson plans are appropriate for middle school use.

Thanks to Liz Kolb for sharing this resource on Twitter.

Applications for Education
Discover Presidential Log Cabins could be a good resource for anyone that teaches middle school US History lessons. The lessons could also be adapted for high school use.
