We’re thinking about the question: How can we create a historical record of important events?

Your challenge this week is to create a “Timeline of Events” to show important events from your life.

Remember your work plan? That’s when you said:

I will try…

I will adjust…

Decide or discuss: What will you do next to turn your draft into a final timeline?

Check out this “Timeline of Events” created by another student.

Ask yourself:

  • What changes did this student make to their work?

  • How did the student use pictures to show events?

  • What ideas does this give you for creating your own timeline?
