Civil War Caricature. Looking for a fun way to end your unit on the Civil War? How about having your students create a Civil War caricature by tracing over different features already created in this packet so they can have fun, share some laughs, and stay engaged as your Civil War unit, or your school year comes to a close. Each one of these original features can be combined to make a variety of characters! The sillier the better!
Included in this product are 4 different bodies - a union soldier, a confederate soldier, a soldier on guard, and a soldier holding a cannonball. There are also 4 face shapes, 12 eyebrows, 12 eyes, 4 moustaches, 2 different sized beards, a cannon, a stack of cannonballs, 1 angled forage cap (2 different sizes), 1 straight forage cap (2 different sizes), 8 different mouths, 12 noses, and 6 sets of ears.
Using tracing paper works best, but you can still see the shapes under regular printer paper and trace over them. Students simply put their paper over the body they chose and trace the features, same for the face, eyes, ears, noses, mouths, etc.
I plan on creating a set of American Revolution caricatures in the future so keep an eye out for them!
