1920s Coloring Pages and Pictures and Roaring Twenties 1920s

Updated on October 6, 2014

1920s Information

Learn about the Roaring 20s through coloring pages, pictures, music and videos. This is a period in time when the Charleston was the rage, women earned the right to vote, jazz was hot and Babe Ruth set a world's record.

I have variety of coloring sheets and images to help you capture the spirit of the 1920s, while at the same time, historical information to accompany the images.

Use this for fun or as part of a lesson plan if teaching about the 1920s. Grab those crayons or coloring pencils and let's take a trip back in time!

Jazz Music 1920s

Jazz music out of New Orleans was the rage in the 1920s. Louis Armstrong, affectionately known as Satchmo, was known for his talents on the trumpet and cornet. Duke Ellington brought the world of jazz to light on the piano.

Both were very instrumental in establishing a music trend for an era in time that became known as the Roaring 20s.

Flapper Girls

The Roaring Twenties was a time of change for women. In 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment gave women the right to vote.

Gone went the sweetness of the long haired, proper Gibson Girl image and in the later part of the decade, the flapper girl appeared.

She was fresh and sassy with a short bob hairdo and boyish figure. The hemline was also shorter with this new style.

When people think of flapper girls, they usually associate them with the dance craze, The Charleston.

1920s Baseball

Baseball has always been a well loved sport in America. One of the greatest ball players of all time is Babe Ruth.

In 1927 he set a record for hitting the most, (60,) home runs in a single season. At that time, he was playing with The New York Yankees.

Amazon readers are raving over this book. It takes an intimate look at numerous baseball players from the early part of the 20th century including one of my favorites, Ty Cobb. Perfect for history buffs and die hard baseball fans.

 

Singer Al Jolson

Many great singers emerged in the 1920s. One of the most popular singers of the time was Al Jolson.

Known for his blackface make up, songs made popular by Jolson include "California Here I Come," "Toot Toot Tootsie," and "Swanee."

Be sure to check out his performance of "Toot Toot Tootsie" below.

Here's a classic song from this time decade. Give it a listen.

Prohibition 1920s

The 1920s was a time of prohibition. The manufacturing and sales of alcohol in the United States were banned.

It was the 18th Amendment which established this. It was done as an effort to reduce alcohol consumption and raise moral values.

1920s Charlie Chaplin

One of the biggest silent movie stars of the 1920s was Charlie Chaplin. Also known as The Little Tramp, Chaplin delighted audiences with his on-screen comical wit.

One of his most memorable films of the decade was "The Kid," which also starred Jackie Coogan.

This Charlie Chaplin photo was uploaded to Wikimedia Commons by Dmitry Rozhkov.

This is fun to watch and such a classic. Check it out.

First Mickey Mouse Movie

In 1928, Walt Disney released Steamboat Willie starring the lovable Mickey Mouse.

What was extra special about this movie is that it was the first cartoon that had synchronized sound. Check out the Youtube video below. I'm a huge Mickey Mouse fan.

1920s Model T

The Model T enjoyed immense popularity during its time. However, the time came when updates were needed to keep up with the times.

The last Model T was produced in 1927 only to replaced with Ford's new Model A car.

      I would transport back to 4th Dynasty Ancient Egypt, to live at the Royal Court of King Menkaure. I would probably want to stay there too. I would want to work as a scribe and write everything down so that in my next life I could come back and write about it all.

      Those times were special for sure. The greatest thing I like about the 20's is the Cinema. The world of moving pictures had its first few blossoms then. I just love silent movies, especially the comedies.If you are interested in the early cinema, check out my first and only lens (yet) :) it is about the Greatest movies of 1919
