American Growth and Expansion in the late 1800s

Eleventh graders examine a picture of John Gast's, American Progress to determine what they know about American growth between 1877- 1900. By working through thirteen center or folder activities, they study the economics, industrialization, immigration, technological change, and expansion of America. They access links that show photographs, documents, and background information about each topic.
