There are five main activities:
Introduce the Civil War Unit with Anticipatory Set of T/F questions to pique interest and build background knowledge. Read about the causes of the Civil War, answer comprehension questions and complete the organizers. The organizers work well for group work.

Next, create a learning station for each of the five character studies. In a folder at each station include:
*Meet _________
*Mini-booklets with timeline cut and sort activity
Students complete the Character Mini-Booklets by writing three facts about that person, put the timeline dates in the correct order, coloring, cutting, and gluing inside their notebooks. There are two articles on each person: one in b/w and one in color to laminate and post on a bulletin board if desired.

Read about the main events and battles highlighted and complete the custom-created graphic organizers. Students may need additional resources to answer all the questions on organizer pages.

Introduce or review the 12 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 as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.

Next, read about the results of the Civil 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 Civil War Flip-up book. They can build it page by page or use it for homework or fast finishers.

At the end of the unit come back to the Anticipatory Questions and K-W-L to check and correct their answers. Give the students the Unit Test to check for understanding and evaluate their learning.
