Spanish American War Document Analysis Timeline
This activity features 10 primary sources from the Spanish American War that students analyze using questions organized onto a timeline. The documents include cartoons, newspapers, lithographs, maps, and pictures all related to each aspect of the war.
The questions begin with a cartoon related to America protecting Cuba and move through the explosion on the USS Maine, the Teller & Platt Amendments, Rough Riders, Yellow Journalism, Buffalo Soldiers, Philippine-American War, and more.
Each task is of varying difficulty and caters to visual and kinesthetic learners in having them finishing sketches to reinforce concepts.
An answer key is included and you can also download the free preview to take a look at all the included documents.
