For some reason, it took me a long time to get around to writing this context clues worksheet on the noun golden age.

However, Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, 11th Edition, lists it simply (which is what you want, I think, if you are using the term as it applies to civilizations as taught in a standard global studies classroom) as “a period of great happiness, prosperity, and achievement.”
