What educators are saying

This was a great source to reinforce the concept of the Roosevelt Corollary while also allowing students to practice analyzing political cartoons.


This U.S. Imperialism political cartoon analysis activity examines the Roosevelt Corollary and Big Stick Policy in Latin America. I use these primary source analysis activities to help prepare my students for the state End of Course (EOC) Exam— a.k.a. the “Political Cartoon Test.” :)

These analysis sheets include Level 1, 2, and 3 questions.

I have updated this product to include different versions of the analysis sheet. I know I like having different options!

One-Page Version: This is a one-page version of the analysis sheet. Perfect for interactive notebooks!

Class Set Version: Have a strict copying limit policy at your school? No worries! This version has the cartoon and all the questions from the long version on the same page. Perfect for making a class set that you can use with all your classes!

Long Version: Two-page version with additional questions.

All versions have two options: 1) unlabeled, and 2) labeled (in order to clarify the text). The labeled version is great for finicky copy machines!

Answer Keys: Answer keys with suggested answers.

Bonus! Teacher Background Sheet: A background sheet with information about the political cartoon, the Roosevelt Corollary and the Big Stick Policy.

I hope you find this product helpful!
