Product Description

Students read about the purchase of Alaska during Reconstruction and excerpts of its official cession, answer 16 questions of varying levels of difficulty, and analyze 5 images. There are 4 prompts to respond to for 3 images and a creative task to complete for 2 other images. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub! See the preview for a closer look!

Sample questions include:

--Why would the American people not have viewed this purchase too highly before the discovery of gold?

--If Russia had discovered the gold first, do you think it would have sold the territory? Why or why not?

--Why would such effort have been taken in the second paragraph of Article 1 in describing the boundaries rather than just saying the Alaska territory?

--Summarize the main points of Article II in 3 sentences or less.

--List and explain 1 pro and 1 con for the inhabitants were they to choose to stay in America.

--Using context clues or prior knowledge, what does "appurtenances" mean?
