All you have to do is print these two pages out and the rest is up to your students! Students will do research and make a "quilt" over the Civil War. The quilt contains 9 squares and makes the students research key figures, dates, and battles from the Civil War.
I print both pages front and back so the students have the instructions and paper in one place. Another idea is to have students use colored construction paper and make cut out 9 squares and use the same instructions included in this file.
This can also be used as a group activity where each student is responsible for one square.
