Look up any words you are not familiar with using:




(you can also find the links at the bottom on the page)

Group these words in any way you feel logical. If a teacher or peer were to ask you why you put words together, you need to be able to explain it. Then give each
group label.

After you have made and labeled your groups you may find a buddy to share your work with. Show them how and why you grouped your words. Notice similarities and difference between your work.

Read the intro section of The Civil War for Kids.

After reading look back over the groups you have formed. Think of changes you would make after reading. Are there any words you would add? Consider this question and continue to the conclusion.
