This set of three part cards should be used to teach students about the main causes of the Civil War. Causes included are: the cotton gin, expansion, slavery, industry vs. farming, Abraham Lincoln, and Succession. This set contains a control card (word and picture), word card, picture card, and information card for each cause. Cards should be printed onto card stock, cut and laminated before classroom use. I made these cards to go along with my yearly study of American History.
