Activity Overview


Comparing and contrasting is an essential activity when assessing two sides of a conflict. Students will be able to draw conclusions from their comparison, and understand the reasons behind some of the compromises made in the 1850s!

Using a T-Chart, students will compare and contrast the differences between the Northern states and Southern states. This chart will incorporate various facets of life, including economics, production, social life, and everyday activities. Students will first depict life in the North, detailing the industrious activity that defined the Northern economy. Students will also detail daily life, including viewpoints on the morality and constitutionality of slavery as an institution. The second part of the T-Chart will do the same for the South, its economy, and daily life there.
