Merging Letters Databases

The 8th graders worked in pairs to complete the
Civil War A Nation Divided WebQuest. (See
link below.) The project called for them to
write letters to each other as soldiers in the
Civil War (one as a Confederate soldier and the
other as a Union soldier). First, they organized
their ideas in a graphic organizer and then
typed their letters. To extend the lesson, the
students created databases in Excel and
subsequently learned how to merge the
information together to generate multiple
letters. This lesson included instruction about
how to create fields and records, sort, and
filter information in a spread- sheet. In Word,
they created merge fields to coincide with their
databases and learned the significance of using
auto-dates in letters.
