1920 Ice Cream Social

1920’s Ice Cream Social

This year the upper elementary students’ Global Theme is “Growth and Discovery in the 20th Century”. So far, we have had two activities that integrated Social Studies objectives with other areas of study:

The Social was designed to integrate performing arts into the study of the 1920’s. The students designed an event that would represent the frivolity of the times. Dancing the Charleston was the highlight of the activity. In addition, each class came up with an activity/game appropriate to the time period.
