Activity Overview


When studying a historical event or events, it's helpful for students to put them in sequence in order to understand how one event led to another. Using a timeline, students will be able to create a visual of the sequence of events that led up to the American Revolution. They can also analyze and explain the actions taken by the British and the actions the colonists took in response to British policy.

For an alternative to the timeline layout, have students create a timeline poster to incorporate into a presentation or gallery walk. Depending on the amount of events you'd like students to include, they may work together to create different parts of the overall timeline and display their posters afterward. You can add more than one template to this assignment to give students lots of options, and update the instructions accordingly.
