Introduce the unit by reading about the causes of the war, answer comprehension questions, and complete the organizers. The organizers work well for group work.


In a folder at each station include the character studies and mini-booklets for students to complete. Students complete the character mini-Booklets by writing 3 facts about that person, putting the timeline dates in the correct order, coloring, cutting, and pasting them inside their notebooks.

Causes of War:

Students can read about the main events and battles highlighted and complete the questions and organizers. Students may need additional resources to answer all the questions on the organizer pages.


Review the 6 vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip-flaps or use them as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.

Results of War:

Students can read about and complete the results of the war. Bring the students together for class discussions to check for understanding and further their critical thinking skills after each lesson. Have students complete the 5-page War of 1812 flipbook. They can build it page by page, use it for homework, or as a center activity.

Unit Test:

At the end of the unit, take the unit test to evaluate their learning. The Unit Test is EDITABLE so that you can modify it to meet your needs. It’s designed in a way that you can use any part of it at any point of time during the unit to check for understanding or use it as a tool to review.
