In connection to a study on the 'Roaring 20s' and a reading of The Great Gatsby, students began short-term secretive research projects on important people of the era. They were then tasked with coming to our class on the day of our 'Mystery Soiree' AS the individual they had been studying.
We played music from the 1920s, drank fizzy water, and made our way around a grouping of stations with envelopes waiting to find out facts about the mystery people at our party.
When all stations have been visited, the real fun begins as students make their way around to 'mingle' and question party-goers in the hopes of uncovering who exactly they are!
This bundle includes an introduction to this short and fun research project, the names of individuals for your students to choose from, and 'headlines', activities, 'magazine covers', etc. for the stations that you can set up in preparation for this event.
