This packet includes a POWERPOINT & A FILL-IN-THE-BLANK VERSION of the PowerPoint for when students are absent or if you want them to follow along with you as you teach the unit.
This is a unit about the Industrial Revolution of the United States that can easily be split up into 6-8 segments for students. You literally start on the first slide and work your way through the entire Industrial Revolution unit. This PowerPoint follows the support document for all of the Industrial Revolution South Carolina standards in 5th grade, but the standards overlap in most states!
It has clip art, primary documents, color-coded words and phrases to help students remember the information. It also uses application of Thinking Maps throughout the unit. Review activities & videos are throughout the PPT.
It is easy for the students to understand, so you could post it on your webpage for students to look over and study at night.
The Industrial Revolution of the United States Unit – Grade 5 consists of 2 PDF Versions...
*****1. The first PowerPoint PDF is in color with all the information, like a normal unit’s PowerPoint.
*****2. The second PowerPoint is a FILL-IN-THE-BLANK PowerPoint that I print out when students are absent. I print 4 slides to a page, and they have to go through the PowerPoint (either in class or at home for homework) to complete the fill-in-the-blanks in order to catch up.
The following SC standards that this unit covers are below:
Standard 5-3: The student will demonstrate an understanding of major domestic and foreign developments that contributed to the United States becoming a world power.
5-3.1 Explain how the Industrial Revolution was furthered by new inventions and technologies, including new methods of mass production and transportation and the invention of the light bulb, the telegraph, and the telephone.
5-3.2 Explain the practice of discrimination and the passage of discriminatory laws in the United States and their impact on the rights of African Americans, including the Jim Crow laws and the ruling in Plessy v. Ferguson.
5-3.3 Summarize the significance of large-scale immigration to America, including the countries from which the people came, the opportunities and resistance they faced when they arrived, and the cultural and economic contributions they made to the United States.
5-3.4 Summarize the impact of industrialization, urbanization, and the rise of big business, including the development of monopolies; long hours, low wages, and unsafe working conditions on men, women, and children laborers; and resulting reform movements.
All of the above is in the PowerPoint.
***Please note that this PowerPoint is not meant for one, long lecture. It is meant to be broken down among a two week unit.***
