I've put together my lesson plans addressing the Essential Questions:What effect does civil war have on people? What is the definition for civil war?
The first task is for students to research a current day civil war and describe it to the class. Then they will create a voicethread or a video to describe what a civil war is. Finally, they will use toondoo to compare and contrast these current day civil wars to the American Civil War.
--All over the course of a week and a half! --
I'm very excited about this unit and believe that it is something that my students can get into.
Please browse the plans and let me know if you have any feedback!
