Day in Review:

Today we continued working on the timeline project.  Students had the entire class to work on researching  or creating their timeline.  All students completed the research portion and were giving their timeline papers and began working on their final timeline.  No students were able to complete the timeline, though many are close.  We will wrap up the project on Thursday.

Assignments and Resources:

With a partner students will construct a timeline of human history running from 8000B.C. (B.C.E) to the present A.D. 2016 (C.E.).  They will research when various civilizations existed, and find events from each of those civilizations to add to their timeline.  To assist students have been provided with a timeline research sheet, which will help them organize their research.  Once they have determined dates for all civilizations and events they will order them, and construct a timeline using large sheets of paper in class, and markers or colored pencils.  Above the timeline they will create colored bars that represents the reign of the various civilizations (so we can see where they overlap) and then add the events to their timeline. A rubric was also provided showing students how the timeline would be graded, and what they could do to go above and beyond and attain a 4.0 grade. Resources provided are:
