Train your students to never miss a detail when analyzing political cartoons or other visual primary sources with this engaging zoom out activity.
This resource contains a fully editable 33 slide PowerPoint presentation with 4 authentic political cartoons from the Gilded Age of American history.
Each cartoon begins with only a small portion revealed as students are given guiding questions to spur their curiosity and predictive skills. As the image is gradually "zoomed out", additional questions are given at each stage in order to incorporate the new pieces of information presented.
Cartoons incorporate both "Robber Baron" and "Captain of Industry" points of view in order to further stimulate discussion.
