THE HISTORY OF CALIFORNIA PICTUREPACKS COLLECTION
Organized era by era, ready-made slide shows provide more than 1200 captioned photographs, artworks, maps, and charts that tell the history of California to the end of 2008. A narrated video overview introduces each of the 12 eras, and the resource includes dozens of additional audio files and video clips. The detailed historical captions come with an option to choose between elementary and high school reading levels. Most of the material covers early California, but plenty of the images provide hard-to-find information about the Progressive era, boom times and the Depression, WWII and postwar prosperity, and California today. Captions and images are printable/exportable for classroom use (not for export to the Web). Grades 4–12. Instructional Resources Corporation. ©2008.
