This is part of Reading Through History's unit covering the Roaring Twenties. In this download there are three separate lessons dealing with the rise of the automobile and the airline industry during the 1920s. The first lesson covers the impact of Henry Ford's Model T and the assembly line process on America. The next two lessons cover the rise of the airline industry and the impact of Charles Lindbergh's transatlantic flight in 1927. For each lesson there is a one page reading activity followed by reading comprehension questions, guided reading activities, vocabulary activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question. This download includes enough material to cover up to three days in a standard 50 minute class period.
*My students typically complete the work in about 30 minutes. This provides for 10 to 15 minutes of discussion/intro prior to the assignment.
