Product Description
The "Roaring 20's" are a fun decade to study. It is the decade when "celebrities" began to exist outside of politics. Students are often interested in learning more about these famous people, so I created this activity. Students are encouraged to hop on-line as individuals or groups and discover what 24 different celebrities of the era were famous for. I made an effort to include a diverse group in terms of gender, race, and talent. After discovering the basic about these individuals, students pick (or are assigned) one that stands out to them. They conduct additional research and create a small poster celebrating their life and accomplishments, which I hang up in the room or hallway. Seeing their work on display is fun, and they learn more about the other celebrities by seeing their classmates' work as well. A fun activity and very little work for you!
