This sort is based on the support document for the 3rd grade South Carolina social studies standard 3-4.1.
It covers the six social classes in S.C. before the Civil War: elite, middle class, lower class, independent farmers, free African Americans, and enslaved African Americans.
Students cut out boxes containing descriptions and then glue them by the correct social class. This can be used as a lesson summary or as an assessment. Answer key included.
