This great activity on Civil War leaders has your students creating Pop Up figures in their notebooks to better understand important figures from the Union and Confederacy.

The resource includes an engaging PowerPoint presentation (& Google Slides version), graphic organizer, and the pop up figures.

Included are pop up cut-outs of:

  • Frederick Douglass
  • Harriet Beecher Stowe
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • Jefferson Davis
  • Ulysses S. Grant
  • Robert E. Lee
  • Stonewall Jackson

The graphic organizer features a map of the Union and Confederacy to help students connect each leader with where they were from. There are boxes for the notes on each one so it is easy for students to follow along with the PowerPoint.

The cut-outs are a great way to help students keep focused as your discuss the contributions of each Civil War leader. I have found this hands-on strategy to be an incredible tool to help students remain engaged in the lesson!

You can also download this lesson as part of my Civil War Unit Bundle OR the Complete Civil War and Reconstruction Units Bundle.
