Word Splashes are great for pre-teaching essential vocabulary for your units. Word splashes work because color-coding, placement, and font styles offer visual clues to students to help them decode and process the concepts.
This Word Splash works great for opening your Civil War unit and exploring the constitutional, economic, and social issues that contributed to sectionalism in the antebellum period. Over half of questions on the Florida U.S. History EOC have tested how sectionalism led to the Civil War!
Keep an eye out for more Word Splashes from me on the breakdown of compromises between the North and South, the course of the Civil War, Early Reconstruction divisiveness, and the failures of Reconstruction!
