Thanksgiving by Puck, 1903-1905

We collected 3 images from the years of 1903-1905 as a way of showing students the way the holiday was represented over 100 years ago.

We created questions and answers for your classroom.

Nixon’s resignation letter

The Watergate scandal rocked the U.S. and resulted in the resignation of President Nixon.

We have included a copy of the letter submitted to Secretary of State Kissinger in August of 1974.

Interview a Veteran

One of our favorite assignments is to interview people about their life experiences, especially if they lived through a significant event.

The best way to find a local veteran is to contact the VFW.

Over the years we have created our own questions, however the Library of Congress Veteran’s History Project has a wonderful resource that is available for your classroom use.  Click here to access the page with questions.

We appreciate all of the sacrifices that veterans have made for our nation and the world.

The Selma Story

The 1950s and 60s are filled with tragic events during the Civil Rights Movement.

The March on Selma is no exception; an event that began as a peaceful march to bring attention to the lack of African American voters in the area (less than 5% of eligible Black voters in Selma in particular) ended in violence.

The region was chosen by the SNCC and SCLC since the sheriff in Selma was notorious for violent reactions to protestors and they hoped to bring national awareness; needless to say the situation escalated.
