I created these questions and project for my sixth grade students. I made sure that I have questions for of the key ideas from Common Core Standards for 6th grade reading for Narrative Text. Questions are mostly constructed response. Idea is for students to answer Common Core based questions that will help them truly understand the topic, characters, and author's purpose.
Before reading this book I had students view a couple You Tube videos on Fort Sumter and the Battle of Bull Run.
