E-book, Graphic Organizer/Worksheet


In this activity students will write two different journal tasks over a period of two days. One journal task they will write as though they are a woman in the Civil War. They will need to describe what their life is like. In the other Journal task I will split the class in half. Half of the class will write as though they are an African American fighting in the war for the Union. The other half will write as though they are an African American slave from the Confederacy. Both will need to write about their lives. This resource is part of the American Civil War collection.
