Here is an editable rubric to assess a timeline project. This rubric assesses the CCSS Standard RI 2.3: Describe the connection between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text as well as creativity, organization, information, and presentation. I use this as an enrichment activity to go along with the Pearson Reading Street story "Abraham Lincoln" by Delores Malone, but it can be used with many different texts or just as a fun project to get to know your students. My students love to get creative and express themselves through their life events.
