Students review Napoleon Bonaparte's rise, reign, and fall by completing a timeline activity and answering 4 questions. There are 22 items for students to place on the timeline. Students must classify each item according to a system detailed in the instructions, they have one task to complete for 6 items of their choice, and another task to complete for 4 other items of their choice. All instructions are provided in the handout. There are arrows in the first two lines of the timeline showing students the direction to fill out the pieces in. This could work for a sub! Answers are provided where appropriate.
Sample timeline items and questions include:
--abdicated the throne
--sold Louisiana territory to Jefferson
--became First Consul
--Battle of Waterloo
--What do you consider Napoleon’s greatest success and why? Would historians agree with you, why or why not?
--If you could give one piece of advice to Napoleon at any point during his life, what would it be and why? Do you think he would have heeded your advice, why or why not?
***a teacher's note is included in the file describing an alternate way students can complete this activity***
