8th Grade Students Reconstruct Gettysburg Battleground

Included in SMA’s 8th grade history curriculum is a unit of the Civil War, with an in-depth analysis of the importance of the Battle of Gettysburg. In order to help his students grasp the strategy underlying the commands of the generals involved, Mr. Curtin worked with his students to reconstruct the Gettysburg battle ground in a three-dimensional display.

 

Below is a video clip of this display and of Mr. Curtin explaining a scene of the Battle of Gettysburg.
