America 1880-1920, 6-12
This web site uses documents from American Memory and activities to help students understand life in America from 1880-1920. Students examine documents the way historians do by observing details, drawing conclusions, and posing questions for further research. Investigations include immigration, women's suffrage, growing cities, industrialization, progressive reform, prairie settlement, child labor, and the representation of Indians. Students can use images from the collections and text they write themselves to create a gallery or a slide show.
