Activity Overview


Timelines are a great way for students to understand historical context and the sequence of events. After learning about the Constitutional Convention, students will create a timeline that reflects major events in the Convention and ratification process. Students should research events that were influential in the formation of the American republic along with events that show the process of ratification. For each cell, students should include a title of the event, a representation of each event in their storyboards, and a description of the event in the space below.

For an alternative to the timeline layout, have students create a timeline poster to incorporate into a presentation or gallery walk. You can add more than one template to this assignment to give students lots of options, and can adjust the instructions accordingly.
