PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Incorporate authentic learning into your classroom by having your students complete this project as you teach about the Civil War. The project is organized around the question: How can you plan a field trip that helps students learn about the Civil War in a way that is exciting and engaging?

Students will brainstorm different types of locations they could visit to learn more about the Civil War. They will then plan engaging activities that students could do on a field trip and advertise their field trip to teachers. They will not only practice social studies content, but also persuasive and descriptive language. Throughout the learning process, their projects will help drive your instruction. There are also opportunities throughout for teaching social skills and 21st century skills through different types of sharing, giving and receiving feedback, and being flexible with plans.

This project can easily be differentiated for your classroom needs. It can be assigned as an enrichment project for early finishers/advanced learners or as a whole class project.

The project includes:
- Step by step teaching notes and teaching suggestions
