Before the Talkies

This Before the Talkies lesson plan also includes:

What is a talkie? I bet most of your class doesn't even know that movies used to come in two colors, black and white. Help them explore the wonders of film history through a group research project. Each small group will research a different decade of film production. They'll use their findings to create a whole-class timeline comprised of each group's decade of research. The lesson is intended to be used with the book Wonderstruck, but works great without the context of the book.
