A Look Back at Modern History: 1970-1979 explores nearly 150 events that happened between 1970 and 1979. From the launch of Apollo 13 to the fall of South Vietnam and gas rationing in California, students will be challenged to learn when each event happened and, at times, why it happened. A set of 12 quizzes ask students to put events in order chronologically. Whether you use it for a review after students have studied a period, a tool to help students develop research skills, or a starting point for independent study of a fascinating decade, students will have the chance to discover modern history in a whole new way.
