The Nineteen Twenties Social Studies Project

Listed below are five websites that will have brief overviews of the 1920’s.

Wikipedia – has a fairly extensive listing of the things that occurred in the 20’s including
Technology, war and peace, science, literature and arts, economics, culture and religion, sports figures, politicians and world leaders and styles.

This site shows a quick overview of the time period and hits the highlights in People, music, literature, politics, clothing, inventions, art entertainment, and fads and fashions.

Site written and researched by school aged children. Interesting perspective.

“The purpose of this web/library guide is to help the user gain a broad understanding of the Roaring 1920s. While there is no way we can link to everything, we have attempted to find areas of special interest and to select information that we hold dear today, for example books we love - movies we watch - songs we sing - events we find interesting - people we admire.”

The following resources are listed in the OBU catalog. The Curriculum library has the first 3 items listed below that are specific to the 1920’s and I have pulled other Cobblestones that contain information about the 1920's. These will be held at the curriculum library desk for all to view. The netlibrary book can be viewed online and the Reference book is located on the first floor in our reference collection.
