History by the Decade: 1980s introduces students to acid-washed jeans, Walkman, VCRs, Sally Ride, Princess Diana, Mount St. Helens, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Tiananmen Square, and more. Through engaging coloring pages and large print traceable copywork, they’ll see what cameras, cell phones, and clothes looked like in the 1980s. This is a great way to combine modern history and handwriting practice. 15 coloring pages; 33 pages total. Ages 5-10.
I love the highlights of this decade (mainly because I can relate to it – cassette players and funky tie-dyed t-shirts anyone??). Bonnie Rose always makes history exciting to learn about. The pictures really help convey the main features of the era.
Yeah, it was a little hard writing about my childhood as “history,” lol. Thank you!
