Product Description
This Civil War timeline activity uses 14 causes and events leading to the war. The students will need a textbook or other resource to look up the events and dates, craft paper, markers/pencils/map colors, rulers, and the instruction paper. The instructions for this timeline are as follows:
1. Look up each event and place with the correct year. Two of the years will be used twice.
2. Use craft paper to create a timeline of the years and events.
3. Each entry on the timeline must have the correct year, event, description, and a picture or symbol of the event.
4. Timelines should be neat and colorful.
This activity requires each student to research the years and events of causes leading to the Civil War, then place them on a timeline with descriptions and pictures or symbols to help define the event. This is a good activity to post on walls and bulletin boards to show off student work.
