I created these Imperialism cards to use in my own classroom. They are based on several textbooks along with the 5th grade Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies. There are 12 vocabulary words, 7 key people, and 1 important event that deal with the progressive era and Spanish-American War. For all cards, there are pictures to go along with the words and definitions. These would be great for bulletin boards or word walls. They can be used to:
-Introduce new concepts
-Study for an assessment
-Assist ELL students with academic content language
-Review for state testing
You can print them as full sheets, 2 pages per sheet (landscape/vertical layout), or more to make them smaller. If you want them to be separated by a line, select the "Print Page Border" option.
SS5H3 The student will describe how life changed in America at the turn of the century.
c. Explain how William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt expanded America’s role in the world; include the Spanish-American War and the building of the Panama Canal.
