Activity Overview


The 5 Ws and H are a powerful and simple way for students to get an overview of a topic and better enhance their understanding. After learning about Slavery in America, students will create a narrative storyboard to explain the 5Ws and H. They will create scenes and a short description to answer the following questions about Slavery in America: When did slavery occur in America? Who was affected by it? Where did it occur? Why did it continue for so long? How did people resist slavery? What happened in the end to finally abolish slavery? In this way students can examine the core ideas about why the institution of slavery was so embedded in American society and how it finally came to an end.

When learning about the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How of Slavery in America, students may need teachers to provide a variety of resources. The use of diverse resources such as primary sources, videos, readings from textbooks, encyclopedias, and literature can be helpful for students to gain an accurate and complete picture of the time period. Students can use graphic organizers with spaces for the 5Ws and H to write down their notes while they read or watch.
