Students get a more in depth look at battles from the Civil War using this graphic organizer. They pick 10 of 16 battles to research and in the chart they fill in the battle name, when and where it happened, which side won, and the general historical significance to the battle. They also answer 10 questions of varying levels of difficulty about specific battles, different types of victories, involvement of Native Americans, and more. Depending on what you cover in class, the students might need access to reference books or the internet to do additional research. The answers are included and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Why did battles not occur further northeast of Pennsylvania?
--Describe the sorts of changes that the Battle of the Ironclads hinted at for the future of war and battles (even thinking beyond the Civil War).
--Explain the differences between a tactical, strategic, and morale victory.
--Describe the intent and degree of success of the Anaconda Plan.
--Which battle do you think is most remembered today and why?
