WHO: Teachers looking for Civil War resources that help bring lessons to life.
HOW: Direct students to http://amhistory.si.edu/militaryhistory/resources/whoami/whoami.html
WHEN: Who Am I is a great option to extend a lesson on the Civil War. Through investigating the clues, the students are quickly immersed into the lives of various people of the time period. Students digitally examine a variety of items and learn about life in the mid-1800s.
Who Am I does not take a long time to complete. This would be an option for small group work or as a side project/lesson extension.
