I have created a comprehensive series of Three/Four Part cards that can teach students about some of the main events in U.S. History. These cards can also be used to create a timeline of American History. There are 5 sets of cards and in each set 8 events are highlighted. For each event, there is a Control Card (Word and Picture), a Word Card (Word Only), an Information Card, and a Picture Card (Picture Only).
This fifth set shows events from 1973 - 2001, and includes these topics: Skylab Launched, Ronald Reagan Elected, Challenger Explosion, End of the Cold War, Persian Gulf War, Information Age, Y2K, and 9/11.
Each set should be cut and laminated prior to classroom use.
