Product Description
This worksheet has 2 political cartoons with 6 questions total that require students to think about the Plessy vs Ferguson decision. This is an activity you can do with the students that could lead into a class discussion or as a check for understanding on the decision. You could also challenge students to create their own political cartoon depicting the Plessy vs Ferguson decision, or have students write a letter to the editor about this decision as an extension activity. Additionally, if you purchase this resource and send me an email at, then I will give you the secondary activity that has sample Jim Crow Laws and questions that correspond with the laws.
