Famous Figures of the Civil War
Now children ages six to twelve years old can join the battle for liberty and make movable paper cut-out action figures of courageous men and women of the American Civil War. If you have a child who dreads reading but loves art and drama, the Famous Figures series is the perfect history supplement for him.

Each meticulous Famous Figures of the Civil War illustration is based on authentic paintings and sculptures. Colorful characters are printed on heavy cardstock with perforated pages for trouble-free removal, and a letter key is included on the back of each figure for easy assembly. Cut out the pieces, punch holes where directed, attach some common fasteners, and your Famous Figures of the Civil War characters are ready to take center stage as your child reenacts momentous events in American history.

If your student is an avid artist, she will be pleased to discover that a colorable version of each figure is also included on the same sturdy cardstock. Fill in each Famous Figures of the Civil War character with colors as realistic or exotic as you wish.

Famous Figures of the Civil War: Movable Paper Figures to Cut, Color, and Assemble by Cathy Diez-Luckie allows children to perform historical reenactments or create new stories using ten of the most important figures of the Civil War.

    Love it!

    Neat little book for enhancing what can feel like a very boring subject to kids.

    Great Activity

    These are so fun! I throw in a YouTube video to go along with these while we are building the dolls.
    A fun approach to history.

    Make history hands on

    Our son enjoys using the figures with history

    Great addition!

    We are doing American history this year, so this is perfect. I like for my kids to have tangible objects for lessons when we read biographies. These are very nice quality.
