    FREE SAMPLE PACK

The Civil War Teacher Pack is a new, unique compilation of teacher-orientated multi-grade resources relating to the American Civil War for teachers of History and Social Studies: lesson plans (Printable PDF’s), source material, maps, archive photographs, Google Earth map overlays and much more.


The Teacher Pack, brilliant for Home Schooling as well, can be downloaded immediately after purchase.  The Pack focuses on key moments of the Civil War from the Dred Scott v John Sandford ruling, the opening salvos of the Civil War at Manassas through to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln in 1865.


The aim of the Pack is to provide a varied, interesting and all-in-one collection of material for the teaching of the Civil War.

What is the Civil War Teacher Pack?


The Civil War Teacher Pack aims to bring together original source material from the Civil War with over 280 lesson plans.


About 90% of the material in the School Pack can be found on the internet, but not in one place.

The lesson plans, maps, archive photographs and Civil War documents can be sourced online but not in one place.


About 10% of the School Pack is made up of NEW MATERIAL created by Video History Today including contemporary images and specially created Google Earth overlays & Placemarks.


The Civil War Teacher Pack is the probably the most comprehensive collection of Civil War teacher material available on the internet IN ONE PLACE.   IN ONE DOWNLOAD.

Why buy this Pack?


There is one reason to buy this Teacher Pack:   Time.  


All the material contained within the Teacher Pack can either be found freely online (archive images, maps, source documents, lesson plans etc), produced from online material (Google Earth map overlays), produced using free applications (pinpointing key Battlefield locations and creating Placemarks) or produced by visiting each battlefield and photographing the key locations.


The only thing a busy teacher or Home Schooler needs is the time to do all the research, download the lesson plans, download and annotate all the images, create the map overlays, find the key locations on Google Earth and visit the battlefields.


In other words, buying the Civil War Teacher Pack will save the average educator a few hundred hours of research and computer work: all for $12.95.  A small investment in money to save many hours of time preparing for the classroom.
