This is a lesson bundle that discusses the events, politics, literature, and people which brought the United States to Civil War. There is an instruction page that will walk you through the presentation of material, but you can certainly pick and choose as you see fit.
Included in this bundle are the following:
Abolitionists: Predictions and Profiles highlight 5 famous abolitionists. Students play the role of "history detectives" as they use evidence to determine how these people helped the abolition movement. There are two PowerPoints, a graphic organizer and a gallery walk
Missouri Compromise: Mapping activity
Nat Turner's Rebellion: A summary reading and newspaper article assignment
Dred Scott Decision: A summary reading and questions
Frederick Douglass: A summary reading and student illustrations
Uncle Tom's Cabin: Primary source analysis

The Election of 1860: Political cartoon analysis
The Nation Breaking Apart: PowerPoint and note-taking guide
The Nation Breaking Apart: A flip book project with rubric

Depending on how you use the material, this bundle should take 2 weeks to complete.
Each of these can be purchased separately in my store, with the exception of the test.
