NOTE: In order for the packet to be completed, the students must have access to the original text -" You Wouldn't Want to Be a Civil War Soldier!" by Thomas Ratliff
Using the "You wouldn't Want to Be" series, students examine the life of a Civil War Soldier. Students will complete a packet that coincides with each page of the book to further their understanding of the topic. They will be asked to fill in a timeline of key events, a map, compare the life of a Union and Confederate soldier, learn more about the key battles including Gettysburg and other informational pages. The title of each page in the book corresponds to a page in the packet. Students will put the information that they read in their own words and produce original artwork to accompany the text.
