Outline: Civil War Era

Greetings Fellow Homeschoolers!

Hope your school year has been joyful and productive thus far!  Beginning next week and through the Spring of 2015, I will be posting history lesson plans on the Civil War Era.  The lessons will be similar in format to lessons you’ve already seen and used from this “U Read Thru History” site.  Each week readings will be suggested for different grade levels, discussion questions will be listed, and activities will be suggested per grade level.    In response to numerous requests, I will also be posting a Unit Study book list for each grade level.  I hope and pray these lessons will be a blessing to you and your family!

Following is the outline for the Civil War Era Unit Study:
