Beyond the Five and Dime: The Growth of K-Mart and Wal-Mart

Young scholars work in groups to research the history of the Five and Dime Store as well as Woolworth's. Groups also investigate the development of both K-Mart and Wal-Mart and reasons for communities to object these large stores. When research is complete and information presented, class is divided into expert panels for either K-Mart or Wal-Mart and create a plan for the introduction of their store into a community that opposes the large retailer.

I use Lesson Planet for supplementary activities/projects every week. I'm currently researching for a current events rubric and found several options. It's great!
