North or South? Which has a better way of life?
Sixth graders brainstorm what they believe are the causes of the Civil War. They copy the blank circle graph into their Social Studies journals twice once for their prediction and once for the actual. Students list the following categories on the board and place them in the sections of the graph where they believe they belong: owned no slaves, owned 20 or mores slaves, owned 10-19 slaves, owned 2-9 slaves, and owned only 1 slave.
