Here's a great reading comprehension packet that gives a great overview of the Causes of Civil War. It includes comprehension and critical thinking questions. These can be used as classwork or homework reading exercises. The five topics include: Missouri Compromise, Abolitionism, Compromise of 1850, Bleeding Kansas and Bleeding Sumner and Dred Scott and Election of 1860. This packet also includes an answer sheet, main idea and supporting details sheet and a sheet for students to take organized notes.
