Here's a great reading comprehension packet that gives a great overview of the Civil War. It includes comprehension and critical thinking questions. These can be used as classwork or homework reading exercises. The six topics include: Advantages/Strategies, Ft. Sumter/Bull Run Battles, Emancipation Proclamation, Twin Victories (Gettysburg/Vicksburg), Sherman's March and Appomattox. This packet also includes an answer sheet, main idea and supporting details sheet and a sheet for students to take organized notes.
