This is a great PowerPoint lesson to help students understand how sectionalism affected America's growth from 1820-1860. The Missouri Compromise, Compromise of 1850, and Kansas-Nebraska Act are all explained along with maps students color and identify.
Each map includes a key for which students color and label free and slave states so they can see how each new agreement changed the shape of America. Background information is provided to help generate class discussion.
For an excellent companion homework or class activity, see this Missouri Compromise Map Analysis
