8th Grade Studies Gilded Age

Eighth grade students have been studying Gilded Age in American history.

The Gilded Age was an era that occurred during the late 19th century, from the 1870s to about 1900. The Gilded Age was an era of rapid economic growth, especially in the Northern United States and the Western United States.

During their studies, students worked their way through an “escape room” scenario based on the Gilded Age. After they escaped they got to play monopoly.  The students will go on to play another round teamed up based on their first round rankings. They are competing to see who lands on top –“Robber Baron” or “Captain of Industry”.
