Finally, a fun way to reinforce content area knowledge! This familiar activity will have students actively thinking about, and discussing, important figures of the Civil War.
Because students only have to recognize the historical figure described, not generate the name, This activity is ideal for discussing both new and familiar people. 30 game boards are included in each set to allow for whole class participation. The special calling cards, featuring fold over flaps to hide the answers, also give you the option of using them in centers - small group of students can play independently without a bingo caller. 30 important figures who impacted the Civil War are used on the clue cards, but each board only has 25; students have to really think about the contributions of each individual, because they may not have a person to match every description. Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential.
The individuals featured in this engaging activity are John Quincy Adams, Clara Barton, John Wilkes Booth, Matthew Brady, John Brown, George Custer, Jefferson Davis, Dorothea Dix, Stephen Douglas, Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Ulysses S. Grant, Rose O’Neal Greenhow, Stonewall Jackson, Andrew Johnson, Robert E. Lee, Abraham Lincoln, George Pickett, Dred Scott, William Seward, Robert Gould Shaw, William Sherman, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey, Booker T. Washington, Theodore Weld and Eli Whitney.
