Product Description

In this Civil War timeline activity, the teacher scatters and hides the 35 event cards around the room. The events begin in 1860 with the election of Abraham Lincoln and end with the 1865 surrender of the last Confederate general. Students use QR readers to find the dates of the events and record the information on a handout. Then, students place the events in the correct chronological order on a timeline. Last, classes or groups compete to see who can put the Civil War events in the correct order the fastest! Students will have tons of fun while learning about important events that occurred during the Civil War.

No QR readers? No problem! A non-QR version is also included!
