Students will conduct research to learn about 16 main causes of the Civil War. This assignment serves as a an excellent introduction to your Civil War unit.
The causes include:
Invention of the Cotton Gin
*Plus 12 more!
For each 'cause', students will research to find the following: Date/Year, Description, Main People Involved, and how the Free States felt versus how Slave States felt about each cause.

If you have enough time in class, this makes an excellent research resource for students to use to write a Causes of the Civil War essay!
If you have purchased my Prelude to the Civil War packet/set, these are the same causes that are included in it. In that packet, students read a paragraph about each event and write a brief summary.
In this research assignment, student have to find the information on their own and complete a chart.
I use either assignment depending on the level of my students and how much time we have.
