Battlefield in a Box
Designed for one, three, or five hour-long lessons, the trunk includes a Teacher's Guide and Read Along Book. It involves a role-playing activity that encourages group discussions on ethical issues, and has been field tested by teachers and students.
Through the use of the trunk, students will learn about:
* The primary events that comprised the Battle of Monocacy, including significant events that preceded and followed it.
* How individual experiences of civilians and soldiers of all ranks provide meaningful insight into the Battle of Monocacy.
* How the battle affected the local community.
* Jubal Early's campaign into Maryland and how the Battle of Monocacy became the only Confederate victory on Union soil.
