Project Overview

This project was created to help young students make a connection between the past and the present. It can be difficult for students to understand that adults were once children and that, they too, participated in leisure activities in their youth. Through the images and lessons provided by the Library of Congress and the enthusiastic participation of parents and grandparents, I hope to engage and excite young learners (and have a lot of fun in the process!).
