US Civil War Inquiry center activity and game - people of the Civil war
US Civil War: The People-Inquiry activity and game introduces students to famous and not so famous people from the U.S. Civil War.

Students read brief informational text on figures and create different cards for people from the U.S. Civil War. Perfect for notebooks, activity centers or small group activity. Students then can play a taboo-style game about the figures - excellent for creative thinking, and definitely one of my students' favorite activities.

This detailed guide includes:
- Suggested uses
- Brief informational text on 16 figures from the U.S. Civil War
- Student handouts including directions of activity and game
- 16 Taboo-style game cards on people from the U.S. Civil War
