    Civil War
    By Carol

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I teach 5th grade and one thing I do with our class during civil war is divide my class into North and South...they then divide again into "regiments," and give those names, such as Johnny Rebs or the Unionists.They also create flags and badges to wear. I choose a diff. general everyday who is responsible for taking up homework,etc. The kids stand at attention and salute as they hand in their papers. I play Revielle as they enter the room. I also put up two pages of chart paper on the wall and give them "combat points" for good behavior, etc. When someone doesn't have homework, that side loses combat points. At the end of the week...the most combat points wins a prize of some sort. They love it.
    Hope this helps..although a little late.
