U.S. History Visual Timeline 1607-2009
This is a five-minute movie using 96 first day covers (envelopes containing commemorative stamps, postmarks and artwork) that begins with Jamestown in 1607 and ends with the inauguration of Barak Obama in 2009. It is formatted in “quicktime “ so the teacher can start it and play all the way to the end in five minutes or the teacher can start it, stop it wherever or just slide to the envelope that contains the topic of the day’s lesson. Each slide makes a wonderful backdrop for a mini lecture. All envelopes can also be printed off to create a visual timeline on the bulletin board or used for an individual or group activity. The music is by Adrienne Torf and permission for use has been granted. I am posting the movie as free and only ask that you go to my website www.fdclessons.com and make a donation of $1.00 or more. Enjoy.
