Want an easy no prep lesson? This is a jigsaw lesson to compare and contrast big business tycoons to Andrew Carnegie, J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and Henry Ford. In the end the students need to decide if they are robber barons or captains of industry.
This lesson makes for a really good group activity to do as a jigsaw lesson or easy sub plans if you are absent! This was designed in Word and can be easily modified and adapted to your classroom.
