This station activity provides seven different stations all relating to the 5 causes of the Civil War (Uncle Tom's Cabin, Kansas-Nebraska Act, Dred Scott Decision, John Brown's Raid, & Election of 1860). They should be used as a method of review and reinforcement after the teacher has already taught this topic.
The stations provide multiple avenues for students to demonstrate their understanding (i.e. creative writing, photo analysis, comic strip, timeline creation, etc.).
