Literature Focus Unit: Civil War

Fourth graders complete a two-week unit on the U.S. Civil War and the Underground Railroad. They read the books "Follow the Drinking Gourd" and "Pink and Say," complete story maps, and dramatize a scene from "Follow the Drinking Gourd." Students also role-play friendship scenarios and write a friendship poem.
