This hands-on, fun, and engaging project requires zero teacher preparation (student directions, grading rubric, and student samples are all included)! This is the perfect project to assign either during or at the end of a Civil War unit. I incorporated it as a supplement activity right after students learned about the “Significant Battles of the Civil War." This project requires students to pick one Civil War battlefield to research, create a replica, and then present both the research and battlefield replica to the class. I was blown away with the focus, enthusiasm, and effort this project generated among my seventh grade students!
