Slavery and emancipation, secession, specific battles, important leaders and figures, women, Reconstruction, and other topics are covered with activities and special "project days." Notebooking pages, penmanship pages, timeline figures, creative writing assignments, Civil War recipes, factfile games, authentic crafts such as a soldier's "housewife" or corn-cob checkers set, 13 lapbook projects, and a final "Civil War Jamboree" project are included for a fun and fact-filled way to learn about the Civil War.
25 lessons may be spread over 5-10 weeks, allowing you plenty of time to customize your Civil War unit study. Text and project overview pages keep lessons on track, while masters, photos and drawings make for easy lesson planning. Teacher helps, keys, resource list and "guide at a glance" included. Grades 3-8; 1 CD-ROM.
