Product Description

This is a complete 5 station lesson for the causes of the Civil War. This is a perfect lesson to teach all the causes of the Civil war in one 50 minute class period. I have my students spend 6-8 minutes a station. There is also an extra two page homework assignment if they finish a station early.

There is a handout provided that students carry around and complete at each station, which is clearly labeled to keep them organized. This lesson is designed in Word and Powerpoint, which can be adapted to fit your classroom. This is a print and use stations lesson! No need to modify unless you want to :) The class period goes so fast with stations!

Stations Included:

- Station 1: Powerpoint notes on the two sides of the Civil War

- Station 2: North and South Map to Color

- Station 3: Compromise and Causes Reading

- Station 4: Video on the Causes of the Civil War

- Station 5: Analyze Political Cartoons on the causes of the Civil War

- Extra two page homework assignment on the compromises and popular sovereignty

Helpful Tip:

    ⇒ I highly suggest printing the station handouts on different colored paper and put them in folders to keep them organized so every year you have them ready to go!

    ⇒ I give my student's 8 minutes a station with a minute passing time to complete a 45 minute class period, with a few extra minutes at the end of the lesson to discuss the main ideas from the lesson.
