THE CIVIL WAR

Thanks to all of your requests over the years, we have put our Civil War unit study onto CD!

Because it is now among our Time Travelers History Studies, it not only contains several of the project suggestions that we posted here, but LOTS more--over 40 activities in all!
Included is text to read, directions for all of the projects, and ALL the printable masters needed to complete each project!

Check it out here!

Also included in each Time Traveler is a list of resources with books, video, and audio suggestions, teaching tips, and a photo gallery to view the finished projects!
