Here is an extended enrichment activity to go along with any Gilded Age/Progressive Era curriculum. This activity allows students to pick from 4 different projects to assess their knowledge on the "rags to riches" theory of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Options include: Scrapbook, Historical Writing Activity, Powerpoint, & Flow Chart depicting rise of industry. I have rubrics for all 4 activities. Once purchased send me a message and I can forward them to you. Let me know if you have any questions. I typically provide 4 class days for this activity to use library and internet to do research.
