1970s Stations Activity - Completely Student-led

Get your students moving and engaged by taking your students through the major topics of the 1970s!

The activity consists of 10 different stations that can be either combined or broken up into smaller/larger stations to suit your needs. The activity also comes with a note page for each station and corresponding analysis/critical thinking question packet. In addition, a link is provided to a spotify playlist created for this activity that can be played while the students work through the stations. My students love when I connect music from the time period/decade to the topics we are discussing in class. The 10 stations within this activity are:

  1. Anti-War Movement
  2. American Intervention in Vietnam Ends
  3. Richard Nixon
  4. Watergate Scandal
  5. Environmentalism
  6. Energy Crisis of the 1970s
  7. Landmark Supreme Court cases: Roe v. Wade, New York Times v. United States, & Nixon v. United States (These can be separate stations or combined into one station)
  8. Jimmy Carter and the Camp David Accords

This stations activity on the 1970s was designed to be completely student-led and should be an engaging, thought-provoking, and challenging activity for your students.

I use this activity as a completely student-led activity where students can work in groups of four, pairs, or individual. For this activity, I do not use a timer for each station, but a running clock for students to keep their time remaining in class. I find this method creates a more relaxed collaborative Smithsonian-like learning environment. However, using a timer can also be very effective to keep students on task, or if you use this as a traditional group station activity.

One thing to make sure of is to remind your students the day before to bring their headphones to class. The QR codes in each station will take the students to topical short instructional videos.

I would greatly appreciate it if you would become a follower of my store and leave me feedback on any of the products you purchase!

Thank you and enjoy!
