Product Description

Engage your students as you get them up and moving with these Civil War stations! Your students will analyze the causes of the Civil War and think critically about them as they move from station-to-station. Don't miss out on one of my best sellers that will surely help your students in your US History classes!

How it works

✅Print the stations out (I recommend printing each station out on a different color)

✅In groups, students carry their handout from station-to-station

✅There are 5 stations. Each station should take around 6-8 minutes.

✅Assignment for early finishers

✅Leave a bit of time for discussion at the end!

✅File the stations away in organized folders for next year.

⚠️Still need some convincing?⚠️

As a secondary Social Studies teacher, I truly understand the lack of resources provided to us, along with the multitude of preps that are assigned to each teacher. I know the feeling of having to plan for several advanced classes each day, which can be very draining. I understand the hesitance to spend your money on anything.

This product, however, will do a few things for you and your sanity to allow you to fully enjoy teaching your students:
✅Cut down on your prep time
✅Lesson plans are already created and ready to go
✅Comprehensive and driven by proven results
✅Free updates and added lesson plans
