Use this Primary Source Analysis Activity to address the CCSS while helping your students gain a better understanding of the New Frontier as America became an Empire in the mid-late 1800s. Students can inspect vivid images, decipher varying quotes, and investigate original documents with guiding questions. A wrap-up question asks students to make comparisons to current events. Since answers will vary, an answer key is NOT provided.
May be used as a class assignment, homework assignment, assessment, or as a small group response activity.
