Heres the Curriculum Map
The Civil War should not be the majority of your
Social Studies curriculum. These two units
together should last approximately four weeks.
To teach the modern 20th century, you need to be
in the 1900s before the end of the first semester.

Fighting the Civil War
  • For 5th graders, this is a survey course. We
    want students to start building a foundation of
    knowledge relating to our countrys history.
  • The goal of the Civil War in 5th grade is for
    students to understand the main issues that
    caused the Civil War, major leaders, and key
    events. They will go further and more in-depth
    with their study when they take the US History
    course in high school.

This book gives students various perspectives of
life and events of the Civil War. Teachers who
used this book found their students visiting this
book throughout their study of the Civil War.
Trade book about a boy who learns to play the
drums from a fellow slave. Later, Union soldiers
tell him he is free. He uses his drum to help
Union soldiers and is recognized for his bravery.
Civil War stories told through poetry. All of
the poems are fictional and the illustrations
reflect the times, but no primary sources are
