Down and dirty, easy peasy! These ABC Research Reports make it easy to cover a broad range of information in a short period of time. After researching a topic related to the Civil War, students will use the Art and Writing Bannersto illustrate and write about what they learned. The ABC Banners make a colorful bulletin board filled with facts and history.
You’ll get TWO banners for each letter of the alphabet that focus on different topics related to the Civil War, such as—A is for Appomattox or Abolitionist; B is for Border States or Battle of Bull Run; C is for Confederacy or Clara Barton. You can assign the topic or let students choose.
You’ll also get blank art and writing banners for a more challenging cooperative-learning culminating activity. Ask the class to brainstorm a list of words, people, and topics related to the Civil War. Write the list on the board as students call out ideas. This allows the class to reflect on everything they’ve learned. (An alphabetical list of topics related to the Civil War is provided for your reference.) Assign a letter to each student, and then give students the blank banners for them to create their ABC reports.
• Step-by-step instructions on how to create the ABC Banners
• Photographs of each step make the directions extra-easy to follow.
• An alphabetical list of topics related to the Civil War for your reference
• An art banner and a writing banner for each letter of the alphabet
