Communism, Socialism, and John Lennon's Imagine
This is a fantastic resource that will certainly help your students retain a better grasp on the differences between Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism - along with John Lennon's classic "Imagine"!
Included in your download are a chart (with a completed answer key), 1-page reading, and detailed instructions on how to implement the resource in a unit on Industrial Revolution or on political/economic philosophies.
The reading very briefly describes an introduction to Communism, Socialism, and Capitalism and how they grew out of the Industrial Revolution. Students use this as a starting point to complete the chart to highlight the basics of each.
An editable Google Doc version of the activity is now also included!
You then use John Lennon's "Imagine" to demonstrate the appeal of Communism and Socialism. Some great companion pieces to use with this resource for a complete lesson would be this Effects of the Industrial Revolution & Communism Lesson Plan
or the Industrial Revolution Complete Unit Bundle
with everything for a 2-week unit on Industrialization!
