Product Description
I love interactive notebooks! Using them means I always have something meaningful for my students to complete or do. Lesson planning becomes much easier! Students have no choice but to become involved in the learning. What did we do without them all these years?

This interactive notebook covers the Civil War, including the causes of the war, the war, and Reconstruction. There are so many Civil War interactive pages you have choices of using some or all of the material.

Picture examples are included. I use these only as an example of how a page could appear. There are no answer keys to the interactive notebook since different classrooms, grades, counties, and states emphasize many various aspects. Also, students are given an opportunity to write many different, varied answers on the templates.
