Students review the Revolutionary War, French Revolution, WWI, Russian Revolution, Europe between the Wars, WW2, the Holocaust, the Cold War, the Space Race, and the Vietnam War by completing a timeline activity and answering 4 questions on each war/event.
Students classify each item according to a system detailed in the instructions, they complete one task for 6-10 items of their choice, and another task to complete for 4-8 other items for each timeline. 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 add extra pieces for students to input their own information. This would be great if you have a sub and the answers are provided where appropriate. See the preview for more information!
