Your students will enjoy this hands-on project in which they will create an illustrated timeline of ancient Mesopotamian history. The dates and events are already labeled in ready-to-cut boxes. Your students will work together to elaborate on the captions with information that they have learned or have researched about ancient Mesopotamia and to create illustrations in order to further demonstrate their knowledge of ancient Mesopotamia. By completing the timeline, students will also practice their chronology and sequencing skills. This project works well as a formative or summative learning activity and is ideal for kinesthetic and visual learners.
