This John Brown Shutter Foldable was used in my KS History class to prepare for an essay over John Brown and his life. Included in this PPT is the foldable outline, and the date cards for his time in Kansas. At a later point, my students were expected to write in the final three dates I expected them to know (i.e. travels the US raising money, Harper's Ferry, and his execution).
If you need any help, please let me know! You can print this foldable as a blank for your students to cut and glue in the timeline pieces (like I did) or have it already laid out for them as a time saver.
