Civil War Webquest: New York City Draft Riots
Students will gain knowledge about the New York City Draft Riots by completing an internet-based worksheet. The New York City Draft Riots Webquest uses an amazing website created by the University of New York.
The webquest contains 70 questions and is a great way to introduce or go into greater detail about the New York City Draft Riots. An answer sheet is included for the teacher.
My students enjoy learning about the New York City Draft Riots. The website makes them want to learn more about the Civil War, especially the homefront for both the North and the South. This webquest usually takes at least one class period, but usually two class periods for my students to complete. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
