Powerpoint that covers several important parts of the gilded age in which big business grew and the average American tried to find their place in the new American economy.
-2 column notes: Business Cycle, Railroad, The Rise of Bis Business, Workers Organize
-Powerpoint: Nice visuals from the time period and an overview of the gilded age. Matches the two column notes.
-Worksheet: The business cycle with a word bank to fill in the chart. Also a worksheet in which you compare a child's day from the 1880's to a typical day for your students. Great for making a pie chart or for having a discussion about how life must have been for children working in factories.
