To summarize the causes, major events, and results of the Spanish-American War.
1 class period
Read through the lesson with the class. It includes a story about the Spanish-American War. Have students do the mapwork at the end of each section.
I recommend providing colored pencils, if available. My students have always liked doing map exercises and using colored pencils adds to their enjoyment.
After completing the Map Exercise, for homework, students will read through a list of 20 events and determine whether each one happened before, during, or after the Spanish-American War.
The lesson concludes with two Thought Questions, which help develop critical thinking skills.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to assess student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
