A Look Back at Modern History: 1980-1989 explores nearly 150 events that happened between 1980 and 1989. From the eruption of Mount St. Helens to the fall of the Berlin Wall, students will be challenged to learn when each event happened and, at times, why it happened. A set of 12 quizzes ask students to put events in order chronologically. Whether you use it for a review after students have studied a period, a tool to help students develop research skills, or a starting point for independent study of a fascinating decade, students will have the chance to discover modern history in a whole new way. Twenty-nine pages total. Ages 14-18.
This is a fun challenge for middle-high schoolers (or even us adults!). It may be surprising for us all to recall a time when prime interest rates were 21.5%!!! There are so many interesting facts for everyone to learn something new.
I still can’t believe the 80s is history to teach the next generation already, lol. Thank you!
