Inphographics: Civil War Tech

The Civil War is often referred to as the first modern war. My ninth graders studied new technology during the period to learn what was so modern about the war.

Every student was assigned one of six Civil War technologies. They researched the developments and made an infographic to present their findings. Most students used Google Drawing, while a handful used Piktochart or Canva.

The GIFF below shows the Google Form we used to vote for the infographics used in this post.
