This webquest allows the students to research aspects revolving around the Civil War as well as how to effectively compile it into a museum structure.


The Civil War was a turbulent time in American history. Many events took place that led up to the war and life was never the same after the conflict was resolved.

The government has recruited you and your team to design a museum covering all aspects of the Civil War. You must collect and analyze research concerning various aspects of the war. Then you must determine the most effective way to present the information you learn!
