This simple worksheet includes a primary source political cartoon about John D. Rockefeller's famous Standard Oil monopoly. Students must read an introductory text and then analyze the cartoon to answer a set of analysis questions.
This makes for a great warm up when you cover the Gilded Age in America, industrialization, or Robber Barons.
An answer key is not included because all answers are open-ended and can answered in a wide variety of ways.
