Product Description
When studying the Civil War, this is one of the most commonly requested topics from my students. They love hearing details about the new technology and weaponry, and how it impacted the course of the war. 

I've found that this topic is better conveyed through visuals. Therefore, this lesson has students view a series of videos that discuss various topics relating to new technology - small arms, naval technology, the telegraph and railroads. Each of these videos is available for free. I've included a 2 page graphic organizer for students to complete with an answer key for teachers. 

The lesson in linked to the NYS Social Studies Framework, but you could easily cut and paste in your own standards for your state.

NYS Standards:

7.8d.3 - Students will examine how the use of various technologies affected the conduct and outcome of the Civil War.

This zip file includes a PowerPoint version (fully editable), a PDF version, and a link to a Google Slides version.
