Product Description
Students choose an important invention from the turn of the 20th century and create an advertisement showing the importance of the invention in history.

This assignment was originally created for a Canadian history class but would be equally applicable to American history as well.

The turn of the 20th Century brought a large number of “convenience” inventions and the beginnings of a consumer economy. This assignment helps illustrate this aspect of history by allowing students to put themselves in the position of advertiser.

Includes an assignment sheet to hand out to students and a rubric for assessment.
