Let your students creativity shine with the 1920s Research Interactive Layered Flip Book!
This project is designed for 6th-12th grade and will take approximately 2-3 days to complete.
Students are provided with a research packet for this project that includes all resources needed from start to completion.
Prior to creating flip books, students will select a topic from the 1920s decade to research.
A Project Sheet contains a list of suggested popular 1920s topics and note-taking guidelines. Topics include Women’s Rights, the Evolving Role of Women, the Resurgence of the KKK, Red Scare and the Trial of Vecco and Sanzetti, the Jazz Age, the Harlem Renaissance, Consumerism and the Economy, Family and Education, Aviation and Lindbergh, Ford and the Automobile, Flappers, Prohibition, and the Impact of Radio.
Students are provided access to a Symbaloo Webmix of over 50 1920s bookmarked websites and resources all on 1920s topics. The bookmarked websites are linked from the student’s research packet.
The research packet also contains a digital note-taking chart with guiding research prompts that will apply to any 1920s topic students may choose!
After conducting research and completing their research note-taking charts, students will design n interactive 1920s Flip Book featuring their research notes and illustrated with supporting relevant images and actual photos from the 1920s.
The 1920s Research interactive layered flip book template is provided. All students need is access to Google Slides or Microsoft Power Point. The template is locked; the text boxes, however, are not! Students can choose their own fonts, insert their research notes in the text boxes, and insert relevant pictures on each page. Teachers can also modify the Flip Book tabbed areas and text boxes if desired!
Directions for printing and assembly are included! Pictures are included in the teacher notes as a point of reference. This flip book is very easy to assemble – no gluing, no coloring, no drawing, no laminating, or any extensive cutting needed!
Literally, all students need are scissors and a stapler! This provides a fun alternative to traditional slides and power point projects! The resulting Flip Books in this project are aesthetically beautiful and rich with informative detail as demonstrated in the included example created for this project on the topic of Prohibition!
This is a great project alternative to traditional research writing for both High School English and US History teachers!
