With the Reconstruction came the ratification of additional amendments to the U.S. Constitution. In this activity, students will create a spider map that identifies and illustrates the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments. They should be sure to describe the significance of each amendment and the benefits it provided to society. Some students may struggle with grasping the concepts of the 14th Amendment, so consider reviewing the term "due process" with the class prior to the lesson.
