PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Get your students investigating how the textile industry created two different worlds while creating economic interdependence between the North and South. This is one of my favorite activities because it's hands on, student centered and makes students think critically!

First, students read the key concept of how America grew from a small farming nation to an industrial giant. Then, students look at a series of 12 pictures. Their goal is to re-order the pictures to show how the north and south depended on each other (pictures range from slaves, cotton and the cotton gin to immigrants, the sewing machine and factories). Then, they have to support their judgment with background knowledge and reasoning. Topics included are:

Labor Systems
Transportation Systems
Innovation
Immigration
City Growth
Industry

This activity is easy to implement and grade. Includes teacher directions with an example, templates and pictures. Have a great lesson!
