PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Andrew Jackson & the Cherokee: Friends or Foes? Common Core Investigation!

This Andrew Jackson and Cherokee lesson is included in the much larger Andrew Jackson Bundle, located here:

Age of Jackson Bundle! 3 activities for Andrew Jackson! Engaging, Fun & Focused!

----

In this highly-engaging, Common Core focused lesson, students analyze the relationship between President Andrew Jackson and the Cherokee people prior to the Trail of Tears.

Students are guided through 6 primary source documents where each child analyzes and understands President Jackson's view toward the Cherokee (and other native tribes) and the role the states (mainly Georgia) and the national government held in Native American matters. Students will understand Jackson's desire to move the Cherokee and other tribes west and, in the end, will draw a conclusion on Andrew Jackson's legacy by answering the overarching question:

Did Andrew Jackson see himself as a friend or foe to the Cherokee people?

Three prompts are included to provide for easy and discreet modifications for lower-level learns and a teacher key is provided!

Enjoy!
