Product Description
This original activity by Primary Source is intended to help students understand the idea that the nation needed to be rebuilt physically, economically, and socially after the Civil War. Students are asked to analyze photographs from after the Civil War, then determine what kind of assistance the people in the photos would need to get back on their feet again. This Reconstruction activity can be used by itself, but works even better with the three-part series on Reconstruction now available in a bundle set at our store, Primary Source. Part II addresses how the nation was rebuilt (Freedmen's Bureau, sharecropping), and Part III asks students to consider if Reconstruction worked when presented with the advent of Jim Crow laws and voting restrictions intended to disenfranchise black men. All lessons incorporate high quality primary sources. Please be sure to rate this activity when you use it! We really appreciate your feedback.
