Note: This is a pumped up version of the original!
A four page detailed factsheet/worksheet on chronology and timelines to be used as an introduction or revision for basic historical terminology and concepts. I found many of my Year 8 students needed revision on these basic concepts before commencing our studies of the Middle Ages.
There is also a rudimentary timeline task which aims to help students understand CE/BCE.
I find that making this clear from the beginning is very helpful for students trying to make connections between what they understand of history and what we will be teaching.
The Worksheet is provided in PDF for easy printing and the original DOCX for easy editing.
Answers are also included.
This is the ‘World’ version of a set of worksheets I developed to target the Australian Curriculum. If you are an Aussie teacher, see the originals here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Chronology-Timelines-Overview-Worksheet-Australian-Curriculum-History-1182267
The worksheets cover:
* terminology such as ‘chronology’, ‘era’s etc.
* CE/AD vs. BCE/CE.
* the four ‘eras’ covered in the Australian Curriculum.
* various types of calendars (Gregorian, Islamic, Chinese etc)
* months, days, leap years
* terminology including decades, millennium etc.
* explanation of ‘1st century’ ‘2nd century’ etc.
* origins of the names of the months and the names of the days of the week
* 12 hour clock vs. 24 hour clock
* differences between USA and rest of world in writing dates.
I am currently developing Year 7-8 historical skills resources for use in my Year 8 History class. I intend to develop a full program for Year 8 History. I would love your feedback on how and where you have used any of my resources so I can be guided in what works and what does not. Contact email@example.com
A resource of mine that I've found very successful in class is my Feudalism PowerPoint: Feuddalism, Manorialism Middle Ages PowerPoint. – http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Feudalism-Pyramid-Manorialism-Middle-Ages-PowerPoint-Posters-and-Worksheet-834762
