Card Sort: Why did Custer lose at the Little Bighorn?
This outstanding resource is designed to help students evaluate how far Custer was responsible for the defeat of the US Army at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. It could be used alongside any main stream text book or resource or as an independent stand alone resource. It also makes an excellent revision activity on the topic as well as preparation for an essay or extended essay on the topic. If you would like to provide even more challenge, then why not check out my diamond 9 activity on this topic. I also have an iPad version which can be purchased from my TES shop.

When you purchase this resource, you will receive a two page A4 sheet in Microsoft Word. The activity includes four heading cards labelled Leadership of Custer, Leadership of Reno Benteen, Leadership of Crazy Horse and Other US Army Leaders as well as 28 statement cards. If you wish to add challenge then you could delete the heading cards and ask your students to come up with their own headings.

The aims and objectives for this lesson are:

Theme: What role did the US Army play in the defeat of the Plains Indians?
Know: What happened during the Battle of the Little Bighorn?
Understand: What roles were played by Custer and Crazy Horse in the defeat of the US Army?
