From horse and buggy to high-powered cars and air born transportation, the 20th century is just bubbling with excitement. It was a time of U.S. involvement in several major wars. We have gone from a time of great depression to a time of excess and leisure. Men have walked on the moon and computers have become a necessary way of life.
An Overview of the 20th Century covers the years 1900-1999. It is complete and comes with an information page for each topic written at a level your child will understand. Each information page has an activity for your child to do that will increase understanding. Each page also has vocabulary words underlined so that your child can see them in context.
