Civil War Photo Story

8th grade, civil war, eighth grade, mike sabala, photographs, primary sources

Mike's lesson is designed to reinforce the concepts, people, places, and events of the Civil War through photos.  The students will create a PowerPoint from a template by choosing photos to match each category.  Students will then compose a caption for each photo detailing their feelings and thoughts about the scenes depicted.  Students are also encouraged to find not-so-obvious details in the photos to add to the captions.  The PowerPoints will then be presented to the class by the students before turning them in.
