Product Description
This is an activity that can be done with any unit in class, but I have found this to be very effective with pictures from the Gilded Age / Progressive Era. This includes:

1. A two-sided graphic organizer that has questions for 6 individual pictures. (Students will have to analyze the photos with this chart...not just a quick glance.)

2. Six high quality pictures that I use in class with this chart. [Picture 1: Child Labor - Coal Mine, Picture 2: Family in Tenement, Picture 3: Homeless Children in City (Jacob Riis), Picture 4: Women's Suffrage Parade, Picture 5: Chicago Meatpacking Factory, Picture 6: Child Labor - Textile Mill.]

This activity can be done different ways:
+ Individually - Students get a picture for 5-7 minutes and then pass it to the next person.
+ As a Class - Gallery walk around the room making observations and helping one another. (Students like this option best).
