Today’s Distance Learning Lesson: The Civil War!

Nomad Books are uniquely designed to enable distance learning.

During these tough times, we want to help families as much as possible as they navigate today’s school reality. We’ll be posting lessons on our What’s Trending blog every week, and we have loads of free resources at our Learning Center.

Plus, you can purchase Nomad Press books direct at our website with no delay in shipping. And through April, shipping is on us.

Today’s lesson is on the Civil War, using the Nomad Press book The Civil War: The Struggle that Divided America by Judy Dodge Cummings. This book is best suited for middle schoolers and early high schoolers.

First, read a sample chapter. The Introduction, which includes a timeline of Civil War events, covers the basics of the war and introduces two characters, one from the Union and one from the Confederacy.
