This is one of my favorite new lessons because students anticipate what they will be learning and link prior knowledge to create predictions! It can be either on paper, digital through Google Classroom or a little of both!
This is a fantastic introductory and summative World of North and South Pre-Civil War America Unit Investigation lesson that has student predict what they will learn about in the era of sectionalism. Students analyze the economic, political and social cultural development of the North and South through maps, charts, primary sources, and visuals. They build on what they see to make predictions and inferences about historical content that will be learned. This Pre-Civil War North and South Investigation lesson can be teacher directed via PowerPoint or student directed with printable resources and/or stations.

US History includes content rich, primary source-driven United States history lessons and activities. Students use critical thinking, in our skill-based lessons that have student analyze historical documents, charts and primary resources. Our U.S. History units are also key concept based.

A common theme throughout our lessons is that students support claims with evidence from secondary and primary source text.
