This project is incredibly flexible! It can be made to be one page or two. A generic back page has been provided if you’d like to increase the amount of information your students research.
The circles on the first page should be filled in with important dates to create a mini-timeline. Underneath each circle, there is a spot for a short summary of the importance of the date.
A blank page has been included for any figures not included in this resource.
To find the information, work with students on researching on the internet (Britannica is my favorite source). Or watch a YouTube video and have your students jot down notes during the video and then using the notebook page to organize the information.
