Living in the 2000s

American History for Kids

The 2000’s were a decade that consisted of bell-bottoms, leggings, cardigans, and denim skirts. During this decade, the internet became standard in houses, social media was created, and DVDs had taken over from the VCR. With the Nokia 3310 becoming the best-selling phone, everyone was playing ’Snake.’

Velour tracksuits were all the rage! These tracksuits consisted of low-rise bootcut pants with a matching zip-up hoodie. Sometimes they were paired with Uggs. They became popular when celebrities were photographed wearing Juicy Couture tracksuits while out and about. By the end of the 2000s, they started fading from popular fashion. Crocs are shoes that looked a lot like plastic clogs. They took the world by storm and by the mid-2000s, it seemed like everyone owned a pair. Made from a material known as Croslite, these comfortable and easy to wear shoes are very durable and pliable. These shoes can be worn in most situations, especially during the rainy season.

The Wii console was created by Nintendo in 2006. It was often bundled with the game Wii Sports, which consisted of five sports games tennis, golf, bowling, boxing and baseball. This game won lots of awards, selling over 82 million copies by the end of 2017, making it the fourth best selling game of all time. The remote allowed the player to control the game using physical movement while pressing buttons. This console was discontinued in October 2013. Sony launched the PlayStation 2 in 2000, which went on to become the most sold video console in history. This console was backward compatible, allowing players to play games that were made for the previous PlayStation model. The Sims was a virtual reality game where they player controlled the life of Sim people. This was the hottest game of the year in 2000.

Before phones like the iPhone, kids in the 2000s carried around an iPod. These handheld devices were designed to play music, and view photos. On some models, you could play games and connect to the internet. The first iPod was released in 2001, this model is now known as the iPod classic. A smaller iPod nano, replaced the iPod mini. The iPod touch was released in 2007. It has a touch screen, like the iPhones. Laptops were invented in 1981. Since then, they have decreased in size and increased in popularity. With better batteries, the weight of the laptops was reduced. DVD burners and CD-ROM drives were added and improved storage capabilities. It wasn’t long before there were more laptops on the market than desktop computers, coming in both PC and Mac formats.

George W. Bush became the 43rd  President of the US on January 20, 2001 and served until January 20, 2009. His father was the 41st President of the US. His calm, encouraging demeanur during September 11th brought hope to a shaken nation and he easily was voted for a 2nd term. Barack Obama became the 44th  President of the US on January 20, 2009 and served until January 20, 2017. He was the first African-American president of the United States.
