Each third nine weeks, I focus on the Civil War in Indiana for our Indiana History class. The project for the nine weeks is to make this quilt and write an essay to go along with it. I have posted in the PowerPoint the books that I use for the unit, however, there are some poems, videos, and other short stories that I have found from the Internet that help build a background for how the Civil War affected Hoosiers.
I originally thought that I came up with an original idea, until I searched the quilt codes online. I do not take full credit for this idea, but have developed a project that works best for my 4th graders.
