In this highly engaging resource, students analyze the debate over Kansas becoming a slave or free state in the buildup to Civil War (and a precursor to Bleeding Kansas).

Students learn about the Lecompton Constitution that nearly admitted Kansas as a slave state, its fate, and how its controversy further split the nation. Students complete an introductory reading on the Lecompton Constitution that can serve as an all-inclusive assignment if time is limited. Then, students analyze text from the document and complete a Common Core focused analytical worksheet. Finally, students complete an engaging writing assignment that serves as the final assessment of this activity (a modified version is included to help lower-level students).

Keys are included!

Enjoy!
