What if Twitter existed in the 1920s? This activity introduces students to the people of the 1920s by examining historical "tweets." The students have to identify the name of the 1920s person who "tweeted" each tweet. A fun and creative activity that familiarizes students with important people from the Jazz Age. Great for American History classrooms.
People included are Al Capone, Warren G. Harding, Charles Lindbergh, Alice Paul, Louis Armstrong, Walt Disney and many more. The activity includes 22 "tweets" from 22 famous (and infamous) Americans.
After identifying each person, the students will then need to fill out a social media profile for one of the people.
