As you travel through the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, your team of time travelers will collect items for a decade time capsule.
We are wrapping up our study of the significant events that helped to shape
America. We began with Explorers and Native Americans. Then we learned
about colonists and the Revolutionary War with England. Next we studied
Westward Expansion and the Civil War. Later we learned what it was like to
immigrate to the United States from another country. We talked about the
Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and World War II. We learned about the
Industrial Revolution and now we are almost through! Let's take a look at
the past few decades and see how they helped to change America.
