Activity Overview


The Compromise of 1850 was just one of the major events preceding the eve of the Civil War. Using a spider map, have students detail the different components of the Compromise. They should include who proposed it, how it was received socially and politically, and incorporate the separate laws that made up the Compromise. Students should also include the debate over passing the Compromise and how it aimed to solve the question of slavery and its place in (or out of) the new territories.

The students will use the 5 Ws for this activity:

  • Who?
  • What?
  • When?
  • Where?
  • Why?
