This lesson will not only provide you with a web quest but also discussion and extension lesson activities. The bulk of this lesson requires students to read information from a primary source found online as a means of building their background knowledge about the Economic Booms of the 1950s .
At the end of the lesson, students are expected to answer the following questions:
● What were the opportunities for growth in the US after WWII?
● How did the growth of suburbs and automobiles impact the US?
● How did the creation of the Interstate change the US?
This is a perfect grab and go lesson for teachers. Students will work individually to answer various open-ended questions. This will allow time for the teacher to get caught up on grade and challenge their students to use their research skills. This is also great for a substitute assignment!
Extension plans are offered as alternatives for classrooms with more time per lesson or as extension opportunities for advanced students.
