Here are original templates that can be used as interactive notebook and activity pages. These Civil War and Abolition themed pages cover multiple events, themes, organizations, and leaders of the Civil War era. The great thing about this download is that it enables you as a teacher to design any activity you prefer.
Ideally, you can use these templates to differentiate activities at learning stations, through an interactive lecture, student led learning walks, group or partner projects, etc. Additionally, I have included two learning activities that can be completed with a partner or group. There is also a matchbook project and rubric about Reconstruction.
I use these as pages in the interactive notebooks my students create every year. These pages turn into the text that we study and learn from. My students love using their creativity and authoring their own history books!
