Who said that history can’t be fun…or funny!??  There are so many references to history in our daily lives and often times we don’t even recognize them!  They bombard us in music lyrics, TV shows, movies, commercials, magazine ads, poems, and even funny cartoons and pictures.  Having a solid foundation of historical events that have taken place will help us better understand these references when we encounter them and allow us to realize the impact history has in our lives.  If for no other reason, let us learn history so we can at least laugh at the TV show or understand the joke they’re making in the cartoons when they reference these historical events! In this assignment, students will recognize that history surrounds us in pop culture by finding two examples and explaining their historical connection.
