The Civil War! If your class is like mine, learning about the Civil War was not on their list of favorite things to do in Social Studies. After trying different activities to try to motivate them to learn about this all important event in history, I finally found something that peaked their interest.
Since I know that students can be highly competitive, I challenged them to get through these 27 Question and Answer cards about the Civil War, fluently. At first they really struggled because they weren't taking the necessary time to study what I had already taught them in class about the Civil War. The students became motivated to learn these facts about the Civil War because I promised them that they would be allowed to act out the Civil War for other classes, if they showed me that they knew these facts fluently. Little did they know that I was planning to have them act out the Civil War for other classes regardless. This product comes with Teacher's Notes and Directions to help you understand how to use these cards.
