Product Description
This worksheet allows students to use a primary source document to learn about the assassination and the disturbing medical treatment that President Garfield received that lead to his death. I use the worksheet to help students better understand the assassination of President Garfield and the horrible medical care of the late 1800s.

This activity is very easy to use. All you have to do is print off the primary source from the following website for classroom use or direct students to the website to answer the worksheet questions:

http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/gar.htm

The primary source document is labeled (The Death Of President Garfield, 1881)

Students read the document and answer the questions on the worksheet. The worksheet includes 10 questions and has an answer sheet for the teacher. The Assassination and Death of President Garfield Worksheet can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify this assignment as needed for your classes.
