I used a site called Poster My Wall (free versions) for students to create posters representing Civil War leaders such as Lincoln, Grant, Lee, etc. Students created, presented and printed their posters in color. I posted them in the hallway for parents to see during fall conferences. My state (Georgia) is moving Civil War items to 4th grade, so I will not be able to use this particular rubric next year for my 5th graders, even though it may still be 5th grade content in other states. Here is the rubric I used to grade students' projects.
