Virginia Studies Civil War VS 7 Word Splash
I used this word splash to start and finish my Civil War unit. In the beginning, they use as many words as they can to come up with sentences about the Civil War, with a partner. As we go though the unit they return back to their sentences to see if they were correct, or if they weren't. They really take ownership and get excited to go back to their initial predictions. At the end, I have the students use the word splash again and create sentences. Now, they should know all the words and get excited to create correct sentences.
I hope your kiddos enjoy!
