Product Description

This product is an independent lesson plan on the Homestead Act designed to be accomplished in about one 50 minute class period. Students participate in a do-now anticipatory set (invite a few students to share out), a link to a brief video intro (2 mins), a second video clip link with a more in-depth video summary (4 mins) that will be watched with purpose through a "Watch for Meaning" prompt, a graphic organizer note sheet for students to complete about the main details of the law, three discussion questions to have students discuss in small groups and then share out as a class, and finally, an artistic product creation to reinforce the learning. A PowerPoint presentation is included to use throughout the lesson. It includes the do-now, links, images, questions, and answers.
