This file is a pdf made from a 53 page PowerPoint file detailing events of the Civil War between 1861 - 1862. Each slide is colorful and most contain pictures related to the topic. It is meant to lead discussion on the early events of the Civil War. The file includes information about key people, events and places during this time period including: Fort Sumter, secession, Northern and Southern Resources, Battle of Bull Run, Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Monitor, Merrimack, Anaconda Plan, Jefferson Davis, weapons of the day, and Civil War spies.
It is everything your 5th graders will need to know about this period of the Civil War.
The file also includes "Hot Seat" slides for checking for student understanding and keeping them engaged.
It works well to display as a pdf. However, custom animations are lost in conversion. If after downloading and viewing as a pdf, you desire to have the file as a power point, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be glad to send it to you.
