To supplement your US or World history tests or final exam, students analyze maps and images (photographs, political cartoons, and paintings). For World History there are 10 maps and 58 images covering 19 topics/units and for US History there are 12 maps and 51 images covering 20 topics/units. There are 3-8 questions for each set of maps and 5 prompts for the images. This would be great for a review or if you have a sub!
The images are spaced in a way that you can cut them out for students to mix and match to create a visual timeline, or even to give students just a few to work with at a time. The answers are included where appropriate. There is minimal overlap between the two files, just a bit with WW1, WW2, and the Cold War.
Sample map questions include:
--Write 1, 2, and 3 next to each map to identify the order the events represented happened. Which countries were involved in the event represented on each map?
--Explain why the borders are different in the maps. Label each map with the approximate year it represents. What sorts of future conflicts can be predicted by looking at the different borders in these maps?
--Explain how these two images are related. How did the sentiments elicited from the image on the left lead to the image on the right?
--What is being portrayed in this image? How did it challenge mainstream views on the subject at the time?
--How did events of the 1850s lead to the map on the left? What was the effect of the map on the right on life in America from 1865 through the 1870s?
--List and provide a historical significance for 4 individuals who played a significant role in the Mexican-American War. Explain the relationship between Manifest Destiny and the Mexican-American War.
