Slavery Comes to America


This Jackdaw is the appropriate reading level for upper elementary, middle school and high school students reading below grade level. It contains the same, ready-to-use, hands-on historical documents as the original, upper-level Jackdaw; most of the documents are actual-size replicas. The fully reproducible Broadsheets provide historical background for understanding the documents.

The classroom display of the slave sale poster, bill of sale for a slave, and the Emancipation Proclamation provided in this Jackdaw will help your students understand the human tragedy of slavery and Lincoln’s efforts to halt the practice and save the Union. The historical documents dramatically show the consequences of slavery on slaves, their owners and our nation to your students. Historian: William C. Hine, adapted by Muriel L. Dubois.
