My 6th unit of the year covers 5th grade TN SS Standards 5.02, 5.03, 5.04, 5.05, and 5.06 and is called "The Great Plains and the Gilded Age." I have created two pages of interactive notebook vocabulary tabs for these 5 standards. Students place these in their "History Highlights" which is our interactive notebook's name. These foldables are scaled to fit a composition notebook. The tabs help develop self-study habits. The pictures provide visuals. Making students responsible for only the vocabulary term saves time. A word bank is provided on each page.
The following vocabulary terms are included: Andrew Carnegie, Economic Disparity, Entrepreneur, Gilded Age, Great Plains, Industrial Capitalists, Industrialization, John D. Rockefeller, Alexander Graham Bell, American Federation of Labor, Thomas Edison, Henry T. Ford, Labor Unions, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and George Washington Carver.
Here is the Quizlet link that reviews Unit 6 Vocabulary.
