LUES 5th Graders Study About the Civil War
It is already October and the 5th graders here at L.U.E.S. have been very busy learning about the Civil War also known as “The War Between the States”! As students learned interesting facts about the various battles and events that took place, they were amazed to find that Gen. William T. Sherman and his troops came close to Toombs County on his March to the Sea! Another fact that the students loved learning about was how Gen. Thomas Jackson got his nickname “Stonewall”. The 5th graders at L.U.E.S. can tell you not only how he got his nickname but can also tell you what battle he was fighting in and where the battle took place! This is just a small sample of the vast amount of fun and interesting facts that were learned throughout the unit. To wrap up the Civil War Unit, the students participated in a project called My Civil War Hero. They chose their favorite historical figure and created a poster of him/her which displayed pictures, facts, quotes, and various other items about the person. The posters were displayed along the 5th grade hall.
