    ✅ 3 slotted notes pages so students can focus on recording the important information from the PowerPoint presentation. Editable slotted notes included!

    ✅ 3 informational reading passages about the Gilded Age (There are TWO versions of the reading passage included. One is the "paper saver" version for when you have to limit your copies. The other is the "note-taking" version which has enough space for annotating and taking notes. This version also includes bolded headers for the different sections!)

    ✅ 12 reading comprehension activities (4 per lesson): Includes key terms, dates & events, data analysis, significant people, literary works, and a literacy connection. Three of the four activities PER lesson have two levels: a basic recall and an application of knowledge.

The quiz is also available on Google Forms, and I include explicit directions on how to assign and tweak (if desired) for your students. The quiz is also self-grading!

    ⭐️Perfect for sub plans! These lessons require ZERO prep for substitute plans. Students can easily check their own answers with the included answer keys.

    What teachers are saying about this Gilded Age Unit:

    ❤️ “I cannot say enough about Brainy Apples' products! We've yet to be even slightly disappointed. My daughter does not enjoy history or social studies much, so we had to look beyond the textbook for her. These bundles are the perfect answer! The perfect combination of reading and comprehension and fun power points and videos. We've used several of these now, and now my daughter seeks out the videos used in the PowerPoint on her own for other subjects she wants to learn more about! She even happily watches history/social studies documentaries now. I highly recommend this bundle!”

    ❤️ “Excellent resources that made it easier to teach the Gilded Age!”

    ❤️ “So many great materials! Thank you! I love a full, and editable, arsenal of extremely useful and engaging resources.”

    ❤️ “Excellent price for so much work.  Thank you.  These presentations were a great addition to my units.  They are editable, so I can customize them for my students.  Very comprehensive.”
