Civil War 3D PowerPoint (Petersburg Campaign)
This is a great lesson that is sure to capture your students' interest in the Civil War. This lesson plan will take one or two class periods to complete depending on the age of your students. 66 slides are used to explain the Petersburg Campaign. 38 slides are in 3D, 14 slides are in color from when I visited Petersburg battle sites. The remaining slides are 2D pictures and text.
This was one of my students’ favorite lesson plans of the year. My students were engaged and talked about it for several days. Even though this powerpoint focuses on the Petersburg Campaign, it is a visual treat for any Civil War unit. The slides are loaded with questions to help the students study the pictures and ask questions.
I would also recommend playing the Battle of the Crater video clip from the movie Cold Mountain if you teach older students. I have attached the link below and it is also in the powerpoint.
You can order your 3D red/cyan paper glasses cheaply through Amazon, eBay, AliExpress, and several other sites. A good price would be between 10 and 50 cents each.This powerpoint goes great with the Siege of Petersburg: Civil War Letter Activity
