Students enjoy researching and creating a "Memory Box" of a civil war hero. In this project (11 pages here), students research a civil war hero, write a biography (including a 3rd person prologue of life, 1st person monologue as the person, and epilogue of what student would say/ask person), write a journal/letter as person, write a poem, create vocabulary cards, surprising fact cards, artifacts, and a decorative box to contain all of these pieces. History in a box! A list of 35 names to research is provided including Civil War generals and other officers for the Union and Confederacy, spies, women in the army (disguised & not), women in medicine, abolitionists, and presidents/vice presidents. PHOTOS of student boxes included.
