Hands-on Project Ideas

Many hands-on activities are available if you would like to supplement your study of Modern times. Here are some suggestions (in random order) with links to details.

American History

  • Flag History
    Research the various flags used throughout the history of the U. S. and recreate them in smaller versions. You could draw them on paper, cut and paste them from colored construction paper, or sew them from fabric.

    You might also research your state’s flag or the Pledge of Allegiance to find out when it was adopted, whose idea it was, and why. Two websites that might be helpful are USFlag.org and the Flag Picture Gallery.

  • The White House
    Research the history of the White House on the official website and the White House Historical Association. Draw a floor plan of it through the years. An interesting supplemental book for this project would be Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out.
  • National Holidays
    Research the history of each national holiday and decide how your family wants to celebrate it during the year. The usa.gov website might help get you started.

    • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (January 15)
    • Presidents Day (Third Monday in February)
    • Memorial Day (Last Sunday in May)
    • Flag Day (June 14)
    • Independence Day (July 4)
    • Labor Day (First Monday in September)
    • Veterans Day (November 11)
  • Letter to the President
    Write a letter to the President of the United States. You’ll find the address on the whitehouse.gov website.
  • State HistoryTake some time to read some books about your state’s history and do some sight seeing.
