At the beginning of this workbook are timeline pages for each student to fill with timeline figures (included in this workbook) little by little throughout the year.
The workbook is also divided decade by decade with the same cover page as you find in HIS Story of the 20th Century.
At the beginning of every decade section, you will find a list of movies set in that section. The whole family should choose one to watch while students work on their timeline by cutting out the timeline figures and gluing them to the timeline pages. The dates for each timeline figure are in the textbook at the beginning of each decade section.
Students read the pages in HIS Story of the 20th Century before beginning each chapter.
At the beginning of every chapter are questions that require the high school student to remember what they learned and explain in with several sentences or a couple of paragraphs. In addition, some sections have true and false questions.
Assorted assignments follow. Each chapter is different. Every decade has its own unique writing assignment and living books (see list below on this webpage). Other assignments and history labs include: radio shows, learning the Charleston, making your own backyard mini golf course, setting up your own Gran Prix, tie-dye, map work, family trees, creating an airline, designing an airport, interviewing someone from a communist country, exploring Route 66, playing sports, and designing your own amusement park.
Please listen to music from each decade. Consider dressing up and making popular dishes from the decade too—it just makes learning more fun!
