I’m sure some of you may have already seen these photos. But for those of you who haven’t, it’s a fun walk through the last 50 years of American history. And thanks to Anne Hathaway and others, my daughter (and her friends) are still into the whole of idea of princesses and princes and queens and that whole cool monarchy thing.

Could I build a huge lesson or unit around these images? Maybe, maybe not. But I’m pretty sure that I could use them as a hook at the middle school and elementary level that takes advantage of student interest.

If nothing else, the pictures give a nice, little history break!

Okay . . . who’s missing?

Apparently LBJ and Queen Elizabeth never met but his widow later did get together with Elizabeth.
