Give your students a chance to live through the Civil War and its significant battles with this fun simulation! Aligned to GA Social Studies standard SS8H6b, this resource can be used by any teacher who addresses the Civil War as part of your curriculum.
Students take on the roles of Billy Yank, Bobby Yank, Jimmy Reb, or Johnny Reb who all start out with a certain salary as well as health and morale points. Students must make decisions throughout the sim that they think will see them through until the end of the war while also learning the fates of each side in several key battles of the war including Manassas/Bull Run and Gettysberg. Zip file includes lesson plan, student handouts, identity cards, teacher script. Do you think your students have what it takes to survive the war?!
