This PowerPoint contains 150 slides with information about the 1960's. This turbulent decade changed the course of history in the United States, and it continues to influence politics and society today. It contains four sections covering material from People and Events, Science and Technological Advancements, Lifestyles, and Sports. The images are from those gathered through Internet searches and the photos are from my own personal collection taken while on Teachers of American History Tours 2006-2013. Annotated notes are included on the PowerPoint, and I have a set of lesson plans that are available as well. These are aligned for Common Core Standards linked directly to 4th grade Reading for Informational Text. My suggested duration would be a minimum of two weeks, but it easily carries into three weeks at an hour per day.
