In simple, students will create a timeline of their life.
This project is great at the beginning of the school year for high school students! I use it with my 10th graders and they love it! It can also be used with a variety of grade levels, where time to complete would be adjusted accordingly. This typically takes my 10th graders two class periods (58 minutes each) to complete and present. This includes explaining instructions and presenting time. You can adjust time as needed or assign as a multi day homework assignment if appropriate.
This is a quick way to have multiple posters to decorate your classroom with (although I'd advise asking students before putting timelines on the wall as some students share personal information in which they don't want everyone reading!)
This project contains a instruction handout that details the specifics as to what needs to be on their timeline poster as well as how many points each piece of the assignment is worth.
The format is a Word Doc. so that you may customize to meet your standards/grading.
