Students review a unit on Byzantines and Slavs from Medieval History by completing this timeline activity and answering 4 questions. There are 28 timeline items to be organized chronologically and classified according to a system detailed in the instructions. Students then complete one task for 8 items of their choice and a different task for 4 other items. All instructions are provided in the handout. There are arrows in the first two lines of the timeline showing students the direction to fill out the pieces in. The answers are included where appropriate and this could work for a sub!
Sample timeline items and questions include:
--Council at Nicaea
--Ivan titles himself Czar
--Yaroslav opens Kiev’s first library
--Justinian's Code finalized
--Emperor Leo III orders icons taken from churches
--sack of Constantinople
--What do you consider the highest point of this time in Medieval Europe and why? Would historians agree with you, why or why not?
--Discuss what may have happened to the Byzantine Empire during and after the Nika revolt had Theodora not asserted herself with Justinian.
