In this project, students will choose a role or character from the Civil War and create a scrapbook for their chosen role.
Students will need an understanding of what a primary source is in order to create their own "primary sources"
This project is research based, so each student will be doing research on their individual character. They will use that research to pick a variety of items that character might have included in a scrapbook. They also need to provide a first-person caption explaining each item's significance to their character.
Students can print or create their items for the scrapbook depending on the amount of time and level of creativity.
