Would be a great a lesson for the Gilded Age Unit!
The zip. file includes -
- Microsoft PowerPoint presentation on the Growth of Cities and Big Businesses. The PPT has 15 slides that includes information on who moved to the cities, laborers in crowded cities, the rise of skyscrapers, rise of big business, invention of electricity, era of big business, shipping, and the use of advertisements & catalogs.
- Student Handout is included in Word Document. The handout is formatted as a graphic organizer where students could fill in the blanks matching the PowerPoint slides.
- A supplemental writing activity is also included as a Word Doc.- Students take on the role of an immigrant writing a letter back to their hometown describing what is going on in New York City.
- Exit Ticket included! Question - What contributed to the rise of Big Businesses?
Would be a great lesson for a whole 90 minute class!
I would really appreciate your review! :)
