This resource is a Google Form and Doc linked to an interactive gallery on President Abraham Lincoln and Reconstruction.
The Union victory in the Civil War in 1865 may have given some 4 million slaves their freedom, but the process of rebuilding the South during the Reconstruction period (1865-1877) introduced a new set of significant challenges.
Students will analyze the gallery of the Reconstruction Era then complete the 8 reading comprehension questions on the form. Then, students will answer the 3 short answer questions on the doc. This activity has worked very well in pairs. This is an excellent enrichment activity.
Students will learn about:
- Abraham Lincoln's Ten Percent Plan
- Abraham Lincoln's Assassination
- Andrew Johnson's Plan
- The Thirteenth Amendment
- Republican Outrage
This product is editable and the answer options have been shuffled.
