Today we started a new unit of study.  We are learning about the events leading up to the Civil War.  After a journal entry warm up, students recorded notes and answered questions while watching a video about slavery and the Civil War.  Here is the KEY.  Lastly, we read about 2 abolitionists.  Students created a Venn diagram comparing/contrasting them.

The unit test is set for Friday Dec 4th.
