Time Travelers: The Civil War


All Text, Masters, Directions, Teacher Keys, Photos, and Resource Lists Provided on CD (Supplies NOT Included)

The Civil War

We are thrilled to share the fifth of our Time Travelers History Study series! Our unit studies are designed to create a hands-on learning experience that drives the lessons home in a fun way.

"The Civil War" contains 25 lessons that can spread across 5-10 weeks, covering the politics and conflicts that nearly tore apart a nation! Topics include: slavery and emancipation, secession, several specific battles, many important leaders and figures, women of the war, Reconstruction, and much more!

Written text is included as well as several choices of activities for each lesson.

Activities include:

* Creative Writing
* Civil War Recipes
* Factfile Cards
* File Folder Game
* Notebook Timeline
* Penmanship Pages
* Notebooking Activities
* Three-dimensional Projects such as a Library of Leaders, Civil War Journal, and Photo Scrapbook
* Authentic Crafts such as
a Soldier's "Housewife," Corn Cob Checkers set, and Victorian Scrap Cards
* 13 Lap Book Projects
* And a final "Civil War Jamboree" to bring the unit to a close!

The CD includes each lesson's text pages, project overview pages, and a wide variety of masters for projects! Photos and drawings help illustrate the directions for completing over 40 activities. Choose the projects that work best for your family! Five "Project Days" are built into the schedule to help allow for extra time to complete outstanding projects.

Also included are teacher helps, resource lists, teacher keys, and a "guide-at-a-glance." This one-page guide will allow the teacher to see the whole schedule of upcoming topics and projects on one page. Tastefully laid out for inclusion in your three-ring binder, this unit study will give both the teacher and students a thorough, exciting adventure into the past!

Suggested Grades: 3-8

Included is a notebook cover made to slip into the clear cover of your 3-ring binder. The art is provided both in color and in black and white for the student to color in.


The teacher's binder will house the reading text, project direction pages, the "Guide-at-a-Glance," teacher keys, and any of the other teacher helps.


The student will accumulate many notebook items specific to each lesson. Included are activities such as a Battle Map, a collection of Pivotal Papers, a Timeline, Soldier's Uniforms, Corps Badges, Divisions of the Troops, Signal Corps Codes and Flag, and more!
