Every state has a rich history that defines how it is known today. In this activity, students will research the history of a state and illustrate it using a timeline layout. The state may be chosen by the student or assigned by the teacher. Students must think about what makes an event truly worthy of being included in the timeline and be able to include detail in their timeline.
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 update the instructions accordingly.
