Decades Mural Project

Students create murals that depict major events and trends of each decade of the 20th century. In this murals lesson, students examine primary sources and discover how to use them in research. Students work in groups to decide how to symbolize the historical objects and images of each decade of the 20th century. Students present their murals to the class along with a synopsis to explain the images.

I teach gifted students, and need to enrich the basic curriculum to meet their unique needs. Lesson Planet helps me find tons of good plans and worksheets that help me go beyond the basics.
