This ready to use Civil War Deck of Cards project will give students a detailed end of unit project that will have them create a deck of cards to represent the Civil War. This activity has all hand outs needed to complete the project: Instruction page, Rubric, and Card pages for each suite. You can choose to run off all sheets for students (total of 10 sheets/ 5 pages if copied front and back) Or you can provide the students with just the instructions and rubric and have them create the deck of cards on their own notecards.
All students need to complete the assignment is an American History Textbook, Historical Atlas OR the internet. This is a great activity to leave with a substitute, since it requires only a textbook, crayons and no prep!
Included is the following:
~Instruction Sheet outlining what should be on each card (both suits and numbers)
~ Rubric/grade sheet which tells students specifically what is being looked for in each part of the project
~2 Pages of Hearts Cards (representing Ace through King, the joker and a cover)
~2 Pages of Diamonds Cards (representing Ace through King, the joker and a cover)
~2 Pages of Clubs Cards (representing Ace through King, the joker and a cover)
~2 Pages of Spades Cards (representing Ace through King, the joker and a cover)
