Students will learn about the significant battles and events during the Civil War. The activity contains 10 pictures/excerpts and 35 questions. Students will spend 3-4 minutes at each station before rotating. I have included gallery walk instructions. Gallery walks are a good kinesthetic activity to get students out of their seats and moving. My students love gallery walks because most of them are sitting all day. The activity requires no teacher preparation other than posting the stations around your classroom. Please message me if you have any questions. An answer key is included for the teacher.
The activity was designed for middle school students; however, feel free to modify for upper or lower grades.
