In this fantastic worksheet, students are presented with the lyrics of the 2 famous campaign songs from the election of 1828. Andrew Jackson was challenging John Quincy Adams in one of the most heated elections in US history.

After analyzing the lyrics to both of these famous songs, students are presented with several CCSS-based questions to gauge their understanding and promote critical thinking. Finally, they compose their own campaign song based off of what they have learned.

This is a simple assignment but encourages creativity and higher-order thinking. It's also great to have students share the songs they've created when they finish!

Both an editable Google Doc version of the worksheet and complete answer key are also included!

This makes for a great introduction to this Age of Andrew Jackson PowerPoint.
