Product Description

A student (and teacher) favorite - hands down!

The teacher reads a story about a city and instructs students to draw specific items onto their construction paper. The faster the teacher goes, and the more the students have to draw, the more frantic they become! This simulation is a PERFECT one to illustrate urbanization - and it's been adapted for United States history. In fact, it is nearly historically accurate and based on the growth of Chicago.

Students will draw a variety of things including tenements, factories, trains, churches, hospitals, and bars. The purpose of this activity is to foreshadow issues that arise in the Gilded Age including,

poverty

industrialization

pollution

alcoholism (temperance movement),

crime

disparities between the rich and poor

factory labor

strikes

labor unions

nativism

philanthropy

tenement housing

Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire

Homestead Act

Transcontinental Railroad

Cattle Industry Boom

Great Chicago Fire

Child labor

This comes with a completed lesson plan, a powerpoint with a warm-up, instructions with historically appropriate images, a video, an instruction guide for teachers (with timer suggestions), and a reflection handout for students. All you need to supply is the paper and markers!

This lesson has been teacher tested and student approved - it's one of their favorite lessons of the year!

Answer key for the student handout is located on the lesson plan.
