Bundle Description
These two political cartoons, Intercourse or Impartial Dealings and Ograbme, or the American Snapping Turtle, focus on America's precarious relationship with Britain and France during the early 1800s. In 1807, facing persistent interference with American shipping, Thomas Jefferson imposed an embargo on all foreign goods. Ultimately, however, Jefferson faced criticism for his inability to stand up to the major powers of Europe.

The download includes the following:

1. A PowerPoint - complete with discussion notes for each slide - that teachers can use to lead students through the cartoon.

2. An introductory paragraph that describes the circumstances behind each cartoon.

3. A full-size picture of each cartoon, allowing students to label as instructed.

4. A graphic organizer that assists students in identifying different parts of the cartoon, analyzing symbols, and determining the meaning of each cartoon.

5. A series of questions based on each political cartoon.

6. An answer key for each cartoon.

While you can purchase Intercourse or Impartial Dealings and Ograbme, or the American Snapping Turtle separately, I am offering them together here at a discount.
