This 6 page packet allows your students to examine and analyze documents from the 1920's that provide information on the causes of prosperity in the 1920's and how this "boom" affected average Americans. This is a great activity for students to complete following a lecture on the economy/politics of the 1920's.
Students could work individually to read and analyze each document excerpt, or they could work in pairs, or this activity could be sent home for homework. As students examine short primary source excerpts they take notes on each excerpt.
At the conclusion of the activity students "Put it all together", and use evidence form the sources to write a short paragraph response to the essential questions. (What caused the prosperity of the 20's and how did this prosperity affect the average American?)
A CREATIVE Exit Card Activity is included!
Works with common core activity as well.
