This project is a fun way for students to learn the key people, places, and items of the United States from 1946-Present. Students are assigned a year and are asked to research these five areas and record them on a graphic organizer. The final part of the research is a critical thinking question.
- Music (Songs)
- People in the News
The second phase is a game that students really enjoy. The wrap-up activity is a summary in which a second graphic organizer is used. This is then used as a review resource for their final exam.
This can be used as a project to compliment the unit you are in or can be spread out over multiple units. Includes a guide of the best ways to use in your class!
