This week, we have learned about civil wars and the fact that these are wars where there is unrest within one country, between two groups of people. We found out about several civil wars through history and across the world. We placed them on our giant timeline in the studio and considered the reasons why there was unrest. We also linked our knowledge to Geography, considering where these wars had occurred. We discovered that quite often the unrest comes from people being unhappy with the government or monarchy. Finally, back in the classroom, we went into more depth about the American Civil War, finding out when it happened, why it happened, where it happened and what happened.
