This short assignment has your students arranging some of the pivotal events leading up to world war one in the correct order, and labeling them with the correct date. The assignment has a short research component as the students do need to find the correct date for the events on their own in order to properly label and arrange them.
Included in this package is am overview of the assignment, criteria for grading, a handout, and a page of events for you to print out en masse. All that is needed is some glue and paper!
Roughly 90-100 minutes, or about 2 lessons.
I recommend pairing this with my Causes of World War One lesson plan!
