Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To understand the plight of American farmers during the years following the Civil War.

TIME:
1 class period

This lesson begins with a fun game during which the class is divided into two teams that will score points by filling in answers on the crossword puzzle on page 69C.

Play begins when Team 1 reads the first sentence in a section entitled Farms Before the Civil War and tries to identify the missing word, name, or term. Students will notice that “35 down” is in parentheses following the blank space. A look at “35 down” on the puzzle tells them the answer has 4 letters. If Team 1 can give the correct answer, it scores 40 points –– 10 for each letter. Team 2 then takes sentence 2 in this section (“16 down” on the puzzle). If Team 1 had failed to give the right answer, then Team 2 would try to identify the missing word, name, or term in sentence 1. If Team 2 knows the answer, it gets the 40 points. The game would then continue with Team 1 taking sentence 2 below.

If both teams fail to give the correct answer, then the teacher will announce it.

When a team gives the correct word, name, or term, it always scores 10 points for each letter in the answer. As correct answers are given, class members write them in the spaces below and also on the crossword puzzle.

Other sections include:

Farms After the Civil War
Problems Faced by Farmers
Attempts to Solve the Farmers' Problems
The Government Helps the Farmer

Conclude the game a few minutes before the end of the period. If the puzzle has not yet been completed, have the students fill in missing words, names, and terms for homework.

Following the game, there are five Thought Questions on page 69D that can be assigned for homework. These help students develop critical thinking skills.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
