Lee; a discussion-based writing activity about who was the most influential general from the war; and an informational text writing unit about the American Civil War.

25 Lessons, or 25 hours of activities, with NO PREP needed!

Firstly, there are ten reading comprehension activities, or informational texts, about:

4 – William T. Sherman
5 – George Meade
6 – Frederick Douglass
7 – Jefferson Davis

These activities require NO PREP and have a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers. Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of each document.
