Product Description
Students review Reconstruction with this graphic organizer, image analysis, and questions review. Topics covered include scalawags, carpetbaggers, Exodusters, Black Codes, the Freedman's Bureau, the 13th/14th/15th amendments, Johnson's impeachment and more! There are 5 images to analyze (with 4 prompts to respond to for each image) and 9 questions to answer, plus the graphic organizer. Answers are included where appropriate. This would be great for a sub!

Sample questions include:
--What was the purpose of the Freedman’s Bureau? Was it successful? Why or why not?
--Did freedom give African Americans a better life? Why and how or why not? List and describe at least 2 differences if the free slave were living in Mississippi versus Massachusetts.
--Why was white southern prejudice largely intensified with the end of slavery?
--Describe the circumstances leading to Johnson’s impeachment. For what legal reason(s) was he brought to trial?
