Product Description
American Civil War simulation activity

History can be difficult for students to understand and experience. Simulations help students put themselves in the past, learning about history in an authentically engaging way. Students love simulations because they don't know what the final outcome will be. It's an exciting learning experience!

Want to try a FREE simulation? You can download my free World War 2 Battle of Iwo Jima simulation to get a closer look!

This minimal prep simulation puts students in the role of a Civil War soldier. Students will learn about a soldier's life and what they went through during their tour of duty.This resource is aligned to my American Civil War Unit Bundle.

This simulation includes:
★ 48 soldier ID cards
★ 16 camp life cards
★ 8 active duty cards
★ 16 battle cards
★ 8 choice cards
★ 16 down time cards
★ 8 weapons cards
★ 8 provisions cards
★ 8 rank cards
★ student instructions page
★ student simulation recording page
★ teacher instructions page
★ RAFT task page

The cards have a colored background to differentiate between the different types. However, if you prefer to save color ink, I have included black line versions, and you can print onto colored paper. The only item you need besides what is included in this resource is one die. That's it! Everything else you need is right here!

Students begin the simulation with 50 points. Students want to end the simulation with as many points as possible. As students progress through this simulation, there are different ways in which their fates are determined. Sometimes students simply draw a card and their fate is shown, sometimes students have to roll a die, and sometimes students can make a free choice. Each decision affects their fate. There are multiple outcomes based on the cards drawn, the choices students make, and what the student rolls. Students can go through this simulation multiple times and have a different outcome each time!

My students LOVE simulations! Not only are they engaging and fun, but students are also LEARNING more about the topic.

This simulation is included in my US Civil War & Reconstruction Curriculum. If you are looking for a comprehensive curriculum, be sure to check out my Yearlong US History Curriculum.
