Imagine you are opening an American history museum. You are creating an exhibit about the cultural changes of the 1920s and you want to create a compelling visual presentation to get museum goers excited about your exhibit.

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. Keep in mind that artifacts are human-made objects from a period in history. When you find an artifact, the date in the citation should indicate it is from 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.

  • The question above wants to analyze your personal ability to search and create a presentation. For that reason, I can't create a presentation for you, but I'll show you how to do it.

    First, you should research the 1920s, its cultural impact, and its most important moments. In this research, you must look for and identify objects that represent these moments. These objects will be artifacts and can be videos, interviews, works carried out at the time, posters, among others.

    After this survey is complete, you can create your presentation as follows:

    1. Show an introduction to 1920, its importance, and its social impact.
    2. Begin to present the artifacts and how they represent important moments from that era.
    3. Show how these moments are seen today and how these artifacts are important in creating that vision.

    It is important to remember that a presentation must contain little text, but it must present visual elements, photos, videos, among others.
