Product Description
Gilded Age Robber Barons & Progressives Dinner Party

In this engaging, higher-level thinking activity, students read about 4 "Robber Baron" captains of industry and 4 progressive reformers. They then must seat each at a "dinner table", making sure to sit each one next to another person that they have something in common with. Three different dinner table templates are included for differentiation purposes - one round and 2 long tables.

This activity allows students to make connections between different people and analyze similarities and differences. They then draw each person's picture in the box, and explain their seating arrangements.

This is an awesome activity for Common Core reading analysis and engages visual learners to see connections between important figures in American History. My students always enjoy this lesson and show a much better comprehension of what exactly a Robber Baron and progressive is. It also allows them to be creative and is fun!

Includes all 8 short readings, 3 dinner tables templates, and a bonus Progressives newspaper assignment!

This download now also includes both printable and Google Docs versions of the dinner party activities! If you're in a paperless classroom or just want to integrate more digital resources, you can use the provided link to bring this resource into Google Classroom!

The Google Drive version also includes links to online resources for each of the Robber Barons and Progressive leaders so students can research about each one. They then drag and drop images of each person around the 2 different dinner table options!

This resource can also be downloaded as part of the Complete Gilded Age Unit Plan Bundle!
