If you teach history/social studies this post is right up your alley. The website MadeFromHistory has put together 30 infographics that look at 30 key events in the last 100 years, and they do acknowledge that the have "left out quite a few events" due to space limitations. You can also find sections that focus on World War I, World War II, and Civil Rights as well as a Referenced Blog, which shares a wide variety of topics.

For many students, using visuals helps them to recall information more readily. If you teach history from the past 100 years it is worth checking out this website.
