I created this project for my students to display information learned about the Civil War. These can be displayed on a poster or on a file folder. The following components make up the project:
Civil War Timeline – There are 11 basic dates from the Civil War for students to put in order.
A Divided Nation – This is a 3 flap foldable which will display the names of the states that were free states, border states, and slave states.
What caused the Civil War – This is a bubble map for students to write causes of the war. For more advanced students, extra bubbles can be added.
Economies of the North and South – This is a 2 flap foldable in which students will write the main driving force of the economy of each section.
Civil War Leaders – Students are given labels and pictures to display the presidents of both sides and the commanders of the troops on each side.
Civil War Vocabulary – This is a 6 flap foldable for students to display definitions of 6 new terms.
