PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Interactive Notebooks are wonderful, and fun, ways to introduce your students to Social Studies, and more specifically, the American Civil War!

I've been using notebooks in Social Studies for several years now, and I love it! My units involve a lot of reading, and even includes mini-books and reading passages! These mini-books have foldables and other activities that focus on reading skills, such as summarizing, looking for main idea and details, highlighting important information, taking notes, etc. My students have loved watching their notebooks grow throughout the school year and enjoy looking back at what they have learned.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

This 99 page Civil War packet is my complete Civil War unit. It is a stand-alone unit, so it DOES NOT require a text book require a text book. The activities in this unit include the following items:

INTRO AND VOCABULARY
-KWL Chart
-Unit Title Pages
-Defining Vocabulary Mini-Book
-Vocabulary BINGO Board
-Vocabulary Matching Cards and Pockets
-Vocabulary Crossword Puzzle

This unit has many mini-books and activities to go with each one. These mini-books include:

-The North and The South
-Slavery in the South
-Causes of the Civil War
-The Battles Begin (secession and Ft. Sumter)
-The First Battle of Bull Run
-The Battle of Wilson's Creek
-The Battle of Ironclads
-The Battle of Shiloh
-The Battle of Antietam
-The Emancipation Proclamation
-The Battle of Chancellorsville
-The Battle of Gettysburg
-The Gettysburg Address
-Sherman's March to the Sea
-The Surrender at Appomattox Court House
-The Assassination of Lincoln
-After the Civil War: Reconstruction

Extension Activities:

The 28th Amendment

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Each mini-book is topic specific, and written for my fifth graders, however, I believe it can be used in grades 4th-6th. For each mini-book, there is a coordinating activity that can be added to a notebook. Reading the mini-book, then completing an activity helps cement the newly acquired knowledge into the minds of students!
