What big events were occurring in each year. I give a few examples:

1951
1952
1953
1954-U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy begins televised hearing into alleged Communists in the Army.
1954-Racial Segregation is rules unconstitutional in public schools by the U.S. Supreme Court
1955
1956
1958-Explorer 1, the first U.S. satellite, successfully orbits the earth.
1958
1959-Alaska and Hawaii become the forty-ninth and fiftieth states.
Each year I have facts about important events that occurred. These are just a few highlights.

The end of World War II brought thousands of young servicemen back to America to pick up their lives and start new families in new homes with new jobs. An energy never before experienced, American industry expanded to meet peacetime needs.

This printable also discusses the fashion, music, theatre and styles of the decade. It also shows pictures.

Recommend printing it out on colored ink and laminating. You will have it for many lessons.
