An extension menu for students to further explore the period of change in America from 1820-1860, including immigration, literature and art, reformation, abolition and Women’s rights. Students also have the opportunity to create their own mini-project. This activity is best used after students have had other opportunities to create similar projects throughout the school year.
This menu includes such activities as designing a PowerPoint, choosing and researching paintings, writing a letter, compare and contrast, as well as several more. Several activities invite students to use their knowledge of the time period being studied and apply it to today.
