Give your students some perspective on the "big picture" of world history! This research activity helps students neatly arrange important world events on a vertical timeline that spans the entire history of civilization--from 4000 B.C.E. to 2000 C.E.--on a single page. It is designed to help students construct a chronological framework for understanding world cultures, and the lesson is structured to make it as fun as possible. It makes a GREAT INTRODUCTORY ACTIVITY for any history class early in the year, or a GREAT REVIEW ACTIVITY for a world history class late in the year.
Students seem to enjoy searching the internet for information, especially when it means an opportunity to use their smart phones in class. This activity will keep 'em busy with partners in class, or as a homework project outside of class. The content material presented is painstakingly researched, and prepared for the teacher's convenience on two easy-to-read keys. The best part is that this activity requires almost no preparation on the part of the teacher--just photocopy the handouts and you're ready to go!
This package includes: Chronological Organizer sheet; Double-sided worksheet for events of general world history; Teacher's key for Chronological Organizer sheet; Teacher's key for double-sided worksheet; Teacher's Guide Sheet
