Civil War Primary Source Photographs Gallery Activity for Grades 5/6 DESCRIPTION:

When our fifth and sixth grade students study the Civil War, they learn the events, battles, some of the important people, and the outcomes of the war. What is lacking from their study of the Civil War is the impact that the war had on real people…People whose names will never show up in a history book…People just like them.

During this gallery activity, students will examine and discuss primary source photographs taken during the Civil War. This activity will facilitate deeper thinking about the people involved in the Civil War and the events surrounding the Civil War. This gallery activity is a hit with students because they are fascinated with the primary source photographs, they get to work with a small group, AND they get to move around!

After students have written their observations about each of the photographs, you (the teacher) will explain each photograph using the "Teacher Read-Aloud" information included in this packet.

All photos are appropriate for 5th/6th grade students!
