The Decades as Studied by my Clever Students!

April 18, 2012



The Decades as studied by my students.

Social Studies unit – The Decades – that covered the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s!

This was the cover of our decades program for our student skits!

To help with the research I found videos on the dances of the different decades for my students to have an opportunity to do. It also gave them a chance to see the styles of dress from that time period.

After researching their decade and putting it all together in a mind map, our clever students choose 3 important events in the categories of:

  • Science and Technology
  • Arts and Entertainment
  • Lifestyle
  • People and Events

and then put the information into a skit.

They were all very imaginative and well done.  The skits were present in different formats:

  • a news broadcast
  • a trip to a wax museum
  • a visit back in time to a day in the life of a family from that decade.

Very clever students!
