PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Civil War Webquest:

Students will gain basic knowledge about the Civil War by completing an internet-based worksheet. The Civil War Webquest uses a great website created by the History Channel. The website allows students to explore the key people, battles, and technology of the Civil War. The website is:

Click here to view the website.

The webquest contains 82 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about the Civil War. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The webquest takes most students at least two class periods to complete. You can have students do all parts of the webquest at once or one part of the webquest at a time. Another option is have students work in groups of twos, threes, or fives and share their answers through a discussion during the next class period. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
