Students get a cumulative review of US History (13 Colonies to 1945) by completing a growth of America map, matching 34 images to their events, putting 63 events in chronological order (both with academic tasks), and answering any combination of 10 essay questions. The timeline answer sheet has room for students to add events based on your curriculum. This is a great end of semester or end of year review and would also work for a sub! The answers are included where appropriate.
Sample essay questions include:
--Explain how political parties came to be in the 1790s and how they developed over time. Would our founding fathers recognize today’s political parties as those they witnessed the birth of, why or why not?
--How did a trial like Sacco and Vanzetti’s reflect American politics and society of the 1920s? Do we see anything like that today? If so how, if not, why not?
--In what ways was the Progressive movement a success, failure, or something in between? Provide examples to support your answer.
