From the eruption of Mount St. Helens to the fall of the Berlin Wall, 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.
