Need an introduction to the Industrial Revolution? Want a way to teach your students the meaning of “Gilded” in Gilded Age?
Use this invitation to introduce the Industrial Revolution and Gilded Age unit (especially as students are likely not as familiar with the title "Gilded Age” as they are “Industrial Revolution”). You can give each student an invitation or project it on the board or wall. Explain the different parts of the invitation or have the students brainstorm in pairs before discussing as a class. The goal of this invitation is to show the overall theme of manipulation, corruption, capitalism, and innovation during this time.
*Feel free to use it as is or adapt the invitation to fit your needs.
Let me know if you have any questions.
