Two great activities that would span four lessons on the American Civil War, which led to age abolition of slavery and equal rights for all. Great for looking at the influence of Abraham Lincoln on the U.S.
NO PREP is needed!
Firstly, there is a reading comprehension activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.
Secondly, there is an informational text writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Ideal for students learning about the American Civil War.
Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
