Civil War: All About Choices: Slavery



Understanding the slave experience can be quite difficult for younger children. It is not necessary to note the more brutal elements for students to learn about this part of our nation’s past. Our approach is to access understanding through the concept of choice by starting with the student’s own life. This lesson is a template that you may expand or adapt to your students’ needs and interests. The questions included are just a starting point. This is 1 of 27 lessons in the unit.
