Product Description
Help your students to explore the quirkier side of history. These materials have been designed to be used by both substitute and regular teachers and include reading pages, activity materials, and lesson plans based on the following topics :

The Straw Hat Riots : Pandemonium in New York City as youths apparently take offense at peoples’ choice of headwear.

Flagpole Sitting : Apparently the greatest entertainment in the 1920s was watching a person sit on top of a pole. Thank heavens for Netflix today.

Dance Marathons : During the Great Depression what people really wanted was to watch others suffer on the dance floor.

The Battle of Los Angeles : One of the lesser known and less commemorated battles of World War Two.

Operation Acoustic Kitty : The Cold War made governments do some very strange things but perhaps none as weird as this spy operation.

The Exploding Whale : A valuable lesson that high explosives and animal disposal do not necessarily mix.

Timothy Dexter : The life of quite possibly the stupidest and smartest man ever to have lived.

The Bat Bomb : Exactly as it sounds, what could possibly go wrong by mixing flying rodents and high explosives.

Emperor Norton : All hail the first, and last, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico.

The Dancing Plague : More dancing madness from medieval Europe. I assume the music wasn’t as good as that during the 1930s.

Tulip Mania : Imagine people paying way to much for something that turned out to be worthless. Bitcoin anyone?

Ornamental Hermits : The perfect career opportunity for the tired teacher. Get paid
to live in peace and quiet while dressed as a wizard.

The Great Emu War : One of the less glorious moments in Australian military history.
Not quite up to par with Gallipoli.

Ex-Olympic Events : I’d pay good money to have the swimming obstacle course
back. Not so much for the live pigeon shooting though.

Olga of Kiev : Hell hath no fury like a woman whose husband is killed and then has those who killed him insist she marry their leader.
