Civil War Stations Activity: Comparing the Union and Confederacy
This is a fantastic lesson to get your students out of their seats and moving around the room while they work together to analyze the Union and Confederacy before the Civil War.
Six stations feature characteristics of the North and South that students must review to determine which region their are describing and whether that would be an advantage or disadvantage in the war. They then must explain why it would help or hinder that side in the war.
After completing each station, students answer a short response question on which side held the most advantages in the war and why.
An editable Google Docs version of the activity and answer key are both included for your convenience.
This lesson goes along very well with this Civil War Resources & Song Lyrics Worksheet
