National History Day: The Mexican Revolution

This collection brings together EDSITEment and Smithsonian resources to support the initial research into a project for National History Day.  While originally created for the 2018 theme, "Conflict and Compromise in History," resources found in this collection are useful for researching other National History Day themes. 

These resources - including primary source newspaper articles, recorded symposiums, lesson plans, and artwork - help explore the complexity and impact of the Mexican Revolution (c. 1910-1920). Resources highlight Pancho Villa, US-Mexico relations, and the artistic movements that rose out of the Revolution.  The second tile of this collection contains questions to help with the analysis of photograph, document, artwork, portrait and object resources. The third tile contains a graphic organizer, created by National History Day, to help explore historical context and the "Conflict and Compromise in History" theme.

By no means is this collection comprehensive; instead, it provides a launching point for further research.

This collection was created in collaboration with EDSITEment, a website for K-12 educators from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Problem-Solving and the US Postal System

This topical collection relates to two of the National Postal Museum's student programs: "First Class Problem Solvers: Ship-a-Chip" and "First Class Problem Solvers: Tube Transport." Both programs explore moments within USPS's history where the company faced challenges, or problems, and identifies how they resolved these issues. After learning more about problem-solving skills, and visiting key objects on display at NPM, students work in groups to find solutions to hypothetical problems--how do you successfully ship a single potato chip without it breaking and how to build a pneumatic tube system to transport a package across town?

Teachers may use this as a pre- or post-trip resource to prompt class discussion on:

  • Unique packages used throughout postal history;
  • Unexpected modes of transport within the mail system;
  • The impact science and industry have had in American history
