This is a mega unit on the Civil War. This unit will bring literature, film, research, writing, perspective, and understanding all together for an incredible learning experience for your students. The literature piece involves reading Soldier's Heart by Gary Paulsen. This download includes a book study (prediction guide, chapter vocabulary, chapter questions, writing prompts, and more). The film and research part is a combination of the regiment study as well as the trial of Mary Surratt. The students will have a chance to determine whether or not Mary Surratt was guilty by researching the evidence. The regiment study asks the students to pick from a list of regiments and research the regiment. Students have products to create that they will want to keep. This is by far the most comprehensive Civil War unit I have ever created. I am really excited to use it with my students, and I am certain you will be too!
