Add to your Civil War unit with an engaging lesson dedicated to female spies! Students will get moving by rotating through six learning stations. Each station features a different Civil War spy. As students rotate through the stations, they are required to answer text-based questions to ensure participation and engagement. A double-sided student response page is provided for students to keep track of their work.
Everything is ready to print and includes:
Civil War Spies Discovery Stations:
6 different female Civil War spies are featured in this activity. Each station highlights a different spy, three from the Union and three from the Confederacy. Multiple copies of the texts can be made for each station, or for classrooms with access to technology, the texts can be displayed using iPads or computers.
Student Response Pages:
As students move through each station, they are required to answer reading comprehension questions for each Civil War spy. The questions encourage students to participate and remain engaged throughout the lesson. The lesson can be extended by having the students write a paragraph about one of the spies using their response page notes.
