Gilded Age Immigration Activity

Are you teaching about American Immigration during the Gilded Age?

Want a fun and engaging lesson filled with all the core content on the Gilded Age?

This activity covers the New Immigrants of the Gilded Age in America.

The presentation has complete information with push/pull factors, characteristics of the new immigrants, and prompts students to compare to the old immigrants.

Role cards are included with images on the screen for students to step into the lesson and act out the people in the immigration story.

The final slides lead students through an activity on comparing the new immigrants, including Italians, Jews, Chinese, and Mexicans.

The accompanying handout has readings and role cards at the end of a word file. Just print, cut, and distribute during activity.

Includes bellringers asking students to analyze industrialism images and a wrap-up allowing students to compare immigrant experience to modern experiences.

Designed for a 90 minute block, but could be easily adapted for 2 traditional class periods.

Could be used in any level of U.S. History class.
