Are you looking for a unique type of Civil War assessment?
This project contains a list of 15 hands-on project ideas to bring the Civil War to life! Activities for all types of learning styles and learners are included. There is also a short written response for all options and a presentation. Have students present it whole group or try out small groups or a gallery walk approach.
This would serve as a great culminating activity! I have always used this as a take home project but it could be done in class as well. I've always had students complete the project independently, but you may choose to let students work in groups. A scoring rubric is included!
