Product Description
Engage your students in thinking critically about the history of the Roaring Twenties through this great culminating activity that features differentiated learning. In this 2-day project, students will be able to create an art medium of their choice, such as a song, collage, or magazine cover, to present their interpretation of the Roaring Twenties. With their projects, students will seek to incorporate historical content into their art piece to address one of two critical questions:
1) What put the “roaring” in the Roaring Twenties? The roar of the party or the roar of hatred?
2) For whom did the American Dream belong to in the 1920s? Or to whom was it denied?
Beyond simply designing an art piece, students also create a museum label to accompany their piece, similar to a real museum; with the label, students can demonstrate their historical knowledge and express how their piece reflects such.

Product includes a lesson plan, student instructions/directions, project rubric, and sample art pieces from previous implementations in the creator's class.
