Understanding history also means understanding the terminology around it. In this activity, students will display their understanding of key terms relating to Reconstruction. Students will create a frayer model that defines and illustrates new vocabulary. Students should be encouraged to choose terms they're unfamiliar with from a word bank.
For an extension activity, teachers can display just the visualization to their class or on a separate worksheet and have students guess which term it is. Students would be able to show off their creativity to their peers while being engaged in a challenging review activity to reinforce the main concepts from this unit.
