Create a Civil War Soldier is a fun, engaging mini-project for your unit on the Civil War! This 8-pg. packet asks students to invent a fake Civil War soldier character and develop a backstory for him through written responses to questions. Students will also write a diary entry documenting a day in the soldier’s life, write a letter home from the soldier, and draw a battle scene in which the soldier participated. Includes a grading rubric for easy grading.
My students loved this activity and created interesting soldiers fighting for a wide variety of reasons – from freemen fighting for the Union to field medics! Test students’ knowledge of content and bring writing into the content area with this creative activity!
