Use what you have learned in the lesson to complete a photo story about this period in which you choose five artifacts and demonstrate how they contributed to the atmosphere and culture of the 1920s. You should use a variety of artifacts, which can include photographs, video, sound recordings, excerpts from literature of the period, song lyrics, or any other ideas you have about 1920s culture.
Research and choose five artifacts using books, videos, or online audio sources and links. Some sites that might be helpful are:
The Library of Congress
The Roaring Twenties
The History of the Roaring Twenties
Cornell University New Student Reading Project
The five artifacts you choose will help you illustrate the cultural changes of the 1920s. Out of the five, you must have an artifact for each of the following:
New Roles for Women
The fifth artifact can be one of your choosing.
Create your photo story.
Identify each artifact with a title and write at least two complete sentences describing the relationship of the artifact to the cultural changes of the 1920s.
Your description should be informative and engaging so use examples and vivid language to make your points.
Don’t forget to cite your sources!
