Today in social studies class, everyone wrote a short paragraph that summarizes the causes of the Civil War. You had to pick between political, social, economic, or cultural to show the causes that led to the war between the North and the South. Then, we shared and went over that in class. The class then got in groups and read different stories/ poems to underline important sentences that will be said and used in their skit. We will create the skits tomorrow. Our goal in class today was to have a good descussion about the causes of hte Civil War and to be ready to prepare our skits. There is no homework due other than to continue working on our History Fair.
