A few tips on how I conducted each activity!
Thank you for looking through my store and settling on the picture book project of Civil War Research Project! I wanted to give you some ideas on how I used each activity, but please feel free to use the activities in any way that you see fit.
(1) Civil War Timeline: I used various websites that I will list below for the different research. I simply allowed the students to investigates the websites and determine a list of important events. They then had to evaluate each event to decide the seven events that they deemed as most important to include on their timeline.
(2) State Profiles: The state profiles include Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia. The students will be tasked with labeling the map where the battles occurred, and then they need to look up the two battles listed to the left. I had the students make bulleted lists in the frames so that they could easily fit their writing.
I hope you enjoy!
