Directions used for a Civil Rights ELA unit. Students struggled to understand the order and time difference between events. As a warm-up, I had them try to put a few events in order on their own then as a class we put the events in order. I gave students legal size paper and walked them through setting up their timeline (folding the paper in half, drawing a line, labeling with years). Then I handed out the attached document and let students work together to create their timelines.
