Product Description
This is an assignment that I do with my 8th grade students at the beginning of the year. It gives me a chance to get a quick assessment of their knowledge of major events from US History. It involves students working in groups to place major events on a timeline. It gives me a chance to not only see how familiar they are with these major events, but also if they have a sense of their chronology and how to read a timeline.

Included in this download:
-Timeline with dates only (Formatted for Legal Size Paper)
-List of events that can be cut into small strips of paper for easy maneuverability.
-Detailed Teacher Instructions of how I use this activity in my classroom.
