PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This worksheet allows students to use a primary source document to learn about the American whaling industry in the 1800s. I use this worksheet to help students understand the importance of whale oil and whaling during the 1800s.

This activity is very easy to use. All you have to do is print off the primary source from the following website for classroom use or direct students to the website to answer the worksheet questions:

Click here to view the website.

The primary source document is labeled (Aboard a Whaling Ship, 1850)

Students read the document and answer the questions on the worksheet. The worksheet includes 12 questions and has an answer sheet for the teacher. The worksheet can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify this assignment as needed for your classes.

I would like to thank Dandy Doodles for the wonderful clip art!
