This is a culminating project for a Civil War Unit. Students are asked to create an Instagram account portraying events of the Civil War. They must use hashtags and historical photographs from credible sources (not just google). This is fun for students because most of them use Instagram daily and it applies a historical perspective.
The actual project can be created in different ways. There are free Instagram templates that you can find (check here at TPT) and provide students with the template. Students can also create an actual Instagram using the website or app. This is your personal preference.
