Description

Students will act like a historian and decide "How did freedom happen?" while reading about the Emancipation Proclamation, 13th Amendment, and Juneteenth. This worksheet includes an analysis chart, summarizing questions, and a writing challenge.

ZIP FILE INCLUDES:

  • 3 page student reading + 2 page student activity (chart & summarizing questions)
  • Answer KEY
  • NOTES for the Battle of Antietam + The Emancipation Proclamation

CHECK OUT THE PREVIEW!

Students will read about:

  • Lincoln's purpose in issuing the Emancipation Proclamation and its effects;
  • The fight to pass and ratify the Thirteenth Amendment; and
  • The significance of Juneteenth.

Ultimately, students will write a brief argument answering the question: What ended slavery in the United States?

Each year, I use this worksheet in an American History course when teaching my Civil War unit. When I introduce the Battle of Antietam, I tie it to the significance of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Students can easily get confused on what actually ended slavery--as historians still discuss this today. I use the notes + this worksheet to get students thinking!

The NOTES cover:

  • Battle of Antietam
  • George McClellan
  • Lincoln's views on slavery
  • The PURPOSE of the Emancipation Proclamation
  • 2 political cartoons on the Emancipation Proclamation with QUESTIONS
  • Exit Ticket

Check out the preview to view this activity! I use this worksheet with 10th grade U.S. History students.
