PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

1920’s “Meet and Greet” – Popular Culture of the Twenties (U.S. History)

Each student will be assigned a “celebrity” and read aloud their biography to the students in the class as they “mingle” around the room. They will complete critical thinking questions to demonstrate their knowledge of each topic they learn about. As a wrap-up activity they complete an acrostic.
