PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

--Student-led -- Primary source stations -- Common Core-based -- Ready to print and use --

In this station activity students will use primary sources, maps and charts, and a video to learn about four topics at four student-directed learning stations:

Station 1: More cotton - Students watch a video to learn how the cotton gin caused cotton to become the preeminent crop in the antebellum South
Station 2: More slaves - Students use charts and maps to evaluate how the number and value of slaves rose with the increase in cotton production
Station 3: More reliance on slavery - Students use primary source documents to evaluate how cotton production was central to the economies of both North and South
Station 4: More resistance to slavery - Students learn about the rise of the abolition movement, and read a short excerpt from Uncle Tom's Cabin

Included in the lesson are student handouts, which correspond to lecture notes and documents for each station.

Students will enjoy circulating through the stations, and using the variety of materials provided to conduct their own learning. The lesson will take 60-90 minutes.
