The Civil War was more than just battles! Cover the major political changes of 1861-1865 with this stations activity! Highlight Abraham Lincoln’s actions and the many ways the federal government evolved during the war.

CHECK OUT THE PREVIEW!

Stations cover:

1. The Emancipation Proclamation as a war measure

2. Conscription Act and draft riots

3. Income tax and greenbacks

4. Copperheads and Peace Democrats

5. Lincoln’s suspension of habeas corpus

6. Homestead Act and Morill Land Grants


EACH station has 1-3 corresponding questions/prompts students will answer on the handout. In addition to these analysis questions, you can assign an OPTIONAL extension activity.

If you choose to use the extension activity, students can choose one of the following to demonstrate their understanding of political changes in the Civil War:

  • Infographic on political changes
  • Letter to President Lincoln condemning/praising his actions
  • Speech on the floor of Congress in favor/against one of the changes
  • Propaganda poster celebrating or protesting one of the changes

I created this activity for an American History course when I needed to creatively engage students while teaching the topics of greenbacks, draft riots, habeas corpus, etc.

Possible ways to use this activity:

· Hang up around room and get students moving (Laminate and reuse!)

· Students work in small groups and complete these as a packet

· Have students access electronically

· Complete as a teacher-led, whole class activity
