Living History Museum - Jobs of the Past

Second graders explore historical careers of the past. They research both fiction and nonfiction books to examine the historical significance of the career. In groups, pupils use multimedia methods to create a presentation on daily jobs. Students create a living history museum and role play a career from the past. Using a Venn Diagram, 2nd graders compare and contrasts jobs of the past with jobs of today.
