This fantastic lesson plan on Juneteenth is an excellent resource to learn about the holiday during your Civil War or Reconstruction units, Black History Month, or at the end of the year!
It includes a full lesson plan detailing how to use all of the great resources included. There's a few video links to use as an introduction before students create an essential question about Juneteenth (several are also included as examples or to assign to students). Students then receive a worksheet to use for collect evidence towards the essential question.
The evidence comes from a secondary source reading and 9 primary sources. The primary sources include interview excerpts from formerly enslaved men and women, images of Juneteenth celebrations, and James Weldon Johnson's Black National Anthem.
After collecting their evidence, students answer the essential question. A rubric for scoring this is included.
An editable Google Docs version of the lesson is also included!
This resource can also be downloaded as part of my Civil War and Reconstruction Complete Unit Bundle!
