My students recently began reading the novel The Year of Miss Agnes which takes place in 1948 in Alaska. Because this setting is so abstract to my students, we started by taking a trip in the Time Machine to 1940. By presenting to my students this power point presentation, they have a better idea in their head about what life was like for our characters. If you'd like to share with your students what life was like in the year 1940, download this free power point from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
