This book is designed to help students learn about the American Civil War whilst working on their comprehension skills independently, and adding to their grammar knowledge and creative writing. Activities are aimed at students between the ages of 9-13.
Each worksheet requires NO PREP and has 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.
