A collection of dates and important events that students work in pairs to organize on their desks for the teacher to then check. This is a great activity to help students to better understand the chronology of world history, and how many events can occur simultaneously. Of course, you can edit or add to this lengthy list to include other dates and events more pertinent to your course. To increase involvement and participation, I usually organize it as a group race for some sort of award to the team that finishes first :)
Included is the printable copy that can be cut into strips and used as a class set. Enjoy!
