CIVIL WARStudents reenact Union or Confederate life in camp or on the home front


A Simulation of Civilian and Soldier Life During the American Civil War, 1861–1865

Role-playing different characters in order to learn about Union and Confederate life in camp and on the homefront, students reenact battles, portray notable figures, carry dispatches, act as spies, work in hospitals, take pictures, operate telegraphs, and more. Five "cycles" (each covering a year from 1861 to 1865) offer a range of indoor/outdoor activities, flexible scheduling options, and ideas for differentiated instruction. Many activities can stand alone as extensions to a traditional unit on the Civil War; teachers can also choose to do just one cycle (requiring about five class periods), or to complete all five cycles. A teacher's guide supplies comprehensive directions; student guides provide background information, role-play instructions, sample letters and journal entries, and a map. Grades 5–11. Interact. Revised. ©2008.
