Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To summarize the changes which took place in American life during the late 1800s and early 1900s.

TIME:
1 class period

In this exciting lesson, students enjoy participating in three contests.

In Contest 1, class members compete to answer as many questions as possible by filling in the missing words, names, and terms. Each correct answer is worth either 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 points depending on the difficulty of the question. A perfect score is 100.

Contest 2 also involves identifying missing words, names, and terms, but the format is different. The first letter of each answer is given as a clue. The answer for the first question starts with "A." The answer for the second question starts with "B." This pattern continues all the way through the letter "W" with 23 questions altogether.

In Contest 3, students try to match as many famous people as they can with the appropriate descriptions of what each person did to earn their fame.

Set a time limit for each contest based on the ability level of your students. I allow mine to use their textbook or any other available resource during the contests.

NOTE:
A lesson like this is very popular among students who enjoy competition.
