In fifth grade, students are expected to be able to articulate causes and effects of the Civil War. Instrumental in understanding the events leading up to the Civil War is an understanding of the major players.
In the short Power Point, students will be introduced to Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Ulysses S. Grant, and Robert E. Lee. There are 3-4 facts included about each leader, providing the perfect jumping off point for you to take students further.
