The Birth of the Baby Boomers

The Birth of the Baby Boomers


This resource is a Social Studies student activity that utilizes Utah's Online Library resources - specifically, Soundzabound to help students learn about the Birth of the Baby Boomers. 


About Utah’s Online Library

Utah's Online Library provides Utah educators and students free access to high-quality reference collections such as EBSCO, Gale Reference Collection, World Book, eMedia, and LearningExpress Library.

This activity was designed to help educators utilize this amazing resource in their classrooms.

Note: Utah educators and students visiting Utah's Online Library from a school computer should be automatically authenticated. When at home, students must use the home access login that their teacher or school media specialist can provide. Utah educators can use either their my.uen login or the home access login.


Essential Question: What can we learn today from the Baby Boomer generation?

Your students are creating videos, podcasts, and other multimedia presentations as they investigate the post-war Baby Boom's influence on America.

Soundzabound, part of Utah's Online Library, is a database of royalty-free, copyright-friendly music that students can use in reports and presentations. They’ll find plenty of big band swing music to complement their Baby Boomer projects.
