-Union and Confederate States
-Yankees and Rebels
-Blue and Gray
-Johnny Reb and Billy Yank
This powerpoint comes with two activities. The first part of this standards wants students to have a visual understanding of the Union States and the Confederate States, therefore the activity shows them a map that they can use to color their own map of the Union and Confederate States.
The second part of the standard wants students to have an understanding of the names that each group created for the other during the time of the Civil War. The powerpoint explains those given names and then allows the students to complete an activity. The activity has the students break into pairs where they will then create a character for an opposing side. (if they choose to be a person from the North they will draw a mocking Character of someone from the South and vice versa) A background for them to draw their picture has been created for them.
