Writing prompts are an engaging way to review the causes, events, and consequences of the Civil War! Includes leaders, battles, slavery, black codes, the effects of war, and more. The activity can also be completed in a center or as a whole group introduction/conclusion to the day's lesson. Correlates with GA fourth grade GSE standards but generic for any state and most grades!
Each of the 23 writing prompts covers one specific element and is taken directly from the GSE fourth grade social studies standard in Georgia. (However, useful for any teacher studying the Civil War and Reconstruction) In the end, there are two blank pages for writers who may need additional space and a rubric for grading!
I hope that you enjoy this product as much as I have in my own classroom. With all of the standards that we must teach, I have a difficult time fitting in daily writing. This product is the solution to that problem and is an easy, “print-and-go” way to integrate social studies into writing instruction or vice versa. I sincerely hope that this product will make your life as a social studies teacher easier while helping your students to think more critically about history and the important events that have shaped our nation’s history.
