Here’s the Curriculum Map…

The Civil War should not be the majority of your Social Studies curriculum. These two units together should last approximately four weeks. To teach the modern 20th century, you need to be in the 1900s before the end of the first semester.

How do I know what concepts to teach?
  • Use your curriculum map!
    • Unit One on every map lists the concepts used for the rest of the year
    • Every piece of content for the rest of the year is listed under a relevant concept
      • These are suggestions – make them work for your class!
  • Keep up with it all using a concept wall.

Fighting the Civil War
  • For 5th graders, this is a survey course. We want students to start building a foundation of knowledge relating to our country’s history.
  • The goal of the Civil War in 5th grade is for students to understand the main issues that caused the Civil War, major leaders, and key events. They will go further and more in-depth with their study when they take the US History course in high school.
