In this bundle you will receive:


Texas in the Civil War
What was life really like in Texas during the Civil War? How do we know? What can your students learn from analyzing artifacts from the past?

This lesson is designed to help students better understand the effects of the Civil War in Texas. Students will analyze photographs, songs and newspapers from the Civil War to identify its impact on life in Texas. After an analysis of the primary sources, students will create their own song or newspaper detailing life during this turning point in Texas History.

Reconstruction
Did Reconstruction accomplish its goals? Were African Americans granted the rights given in the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments? In this activity students will examine the Reconstruction time period through primary source images, quotes and text. Students will discuss the topic - Is everyone in the United States free?

Events Leading to the Civil War

In this activity, students will create summaries of the different events leading to the Civil War. A graphic organizer is provided to assist your students. Once their summaries are created, they will create a Human Timeline by posting their placard (slide from the PowerPoint) and sharing their summary with the class. All of the images from the placards help serve as a visual cue for your students. Once you have reviewed the events in chronological order, you can lead a class discussion by creating a Human Spectrum – Which of these events was the most important leading to the Civil War? The least? This allows your student to discuss and review the topics in a meaningful way.
