What educators are saying

Loved this Resource. So many activities for my students to do, and it kept them engaged. The writing is a great addition. Thanks.


If you are looking for an overview of the Roaring Twenties, this 4-page magazine format article will not only allow your students to practice reading with non-fiction text features, but is high interest and well-rounded.

This article is set up similar to a magazine with 4 pages of reading that contain text features (ex. headings, fact boxes). I like to staple the article to form a booklet. Comprehension questions and answer keys are included!

The article covers the following content:

-What were the Roaring Twenties?

-Aftermath of WWI

-Henry Ford’s Model T


-Hair & Fashion

-Prohibition & Speakeasies

-Movie Theatres

-Jazz Music

-Harlem Renaissance

-Radio & Sports

-Slang Terms

-End of Roaring Twenties

Comprehension Questions include 3 Forms:

-Vocabulary: students use context clues to write the definition of key terms

-Multiple Choice/True/False: students answer questions based on the reading

-Short Answer: students provide written evidence to support the answer to the question
