Product Description
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby Pre-Reading Activity contains 2 activities to choose from - either Pecha Kucha Presentations or Gallery Walk Fun. Detailed instructions are given for each so that you may decide which option is best for your students. A grading rubric for the teacher and an evaluation checklist for the students are included for the presentations.

There are 12 topics from the Roaring Twenties for students to explore. Those are ready to be printed from this packet. You may decide to randomly hand out topics or allow students to select which they are most interested in. They research their topics and obtain a few facts about the topic they are assigned to.

This activity will get them ready to read The Great Gatsby! While reading, they will be able to better connect with aspects of the book because they are more familiar with the 1920s. The topics given are relevant to The Great Gatsby.
