97 slides with images that show the United States after World War II. We are now a superpower, but we aren't alone. The Soviet Union is competing in space and threatening us with the use of Nuclear Weapons. Some images contain captions and information.
These slides are aligned with the Harcourt 5th Grade Social Studies Textbook "The United States" but can be used for all history purposes. I never use the text, I research and generate my own lecture notes. If you purchase the slides I will email you the lecture notes. Just leave a comment with your email address.
The slides start with communism. Remember this is for younger children, as it isn't complex. It tells the basic component of communism.
Other slides include:
Suburban homes (William Levitt)
1950 Television in U.S.
Cuban Missile Crisis
There are also some video links as well.
